Another shot that doesn’t require much narrative. Love the wasp on the white.
Here’s a neat look at a paper wasp in the irises – and in the catmint, too. That nasty thing just under and to the right of the wasp is a spent iris. Check out the wasp’s eye. Really neat!
From yesterday. Nice look at both the wasp and the flower.
Paper wasp on a Siberian Squill. Lots of those lately. They seem to like what the squill has to offer. Or…maybe they’re just hunting because that’s where the other critters are currently. The orange-ey looking succulent is Sedum Angelina. One of my very favorites. Great ground cover. Today it’s mostly orange. But it can be green, brown, yellow, orange, or even red. Depending. One of the reasons I like it so much is that while it spreads everywhere fast (and keeps the weeds down, mostly), it’s pretty easy to remove. That’s not always the case with effective ground covers. So here’s a paper wasp face.
From the same date. I like the colors in this one. Among other things. “Inadvertent pollinator” again.
Rozanne again. And a great wasp face.
These guys get around and are around often enough to call them “inadvertent pollinators.” I think this is a pretty neat shot. Love the eyes and neck on this one. Another from the day at Red Butte Garden.
