Saw 4 in the area.
Feeding on housefly while on metal pole at a farm stand. There were many flies on the pole and the spider seemed to have found a great feeding spot.
On goldenrod in meadow area.
On purple clover (Trifolium)
In meadow on grass.
I saw a Toxomerus marginatus perched on the leaf in the center of this image, curve its abdomen around and touch it to the edge of this leaf. When it flew away the small green ovoid objects was on the edge of the leaf. Possible Toxomerus marginatus egg?
Touching abdomen to plant surface. I believe that it was laying eggs. I have other images taken on this same day of the larvae and I believe an egg which I saw a fly laying.
Aphids feeding on Calibrachoa.
These were being preyed upon by syrphid fly larvae.
