This is a kid-friendly site. Usually. Can’t remember what the flower is called.
Bonus: Good Look at a Wasp
Neat looking wasp here. Another inadvertent pollinator. Great eyes.
Bonus: The Goldenrod Has Been Buzzing Lately
Shot this at midday today. Some of the shots I’ve got four or five (admittedly out of focus) critters in them. The wasps seem to be as fond of it as the bees. And flies. Fun pic. Enjoy!
Bonus – Very Neat Wasp on the Trumpet Vine
Check out that eye! And the coloring. I don’t see this one often.
Bonus – A Good Look at the Thread in Thread-wasted
On the trumpet vine, again.
Bonus – Paper Wasp on a Trumpet Vine Blossom
From the same date. I like the colors in this one. Among other things. “Inadvertent pollinator” again.
Super-neat Wasp Face
Another inadvertent pollinator. Great eyes – face and tongue. Seems to be today’s focus… On a Black-eyed Susan of all things.
On the Mojito Mint
This one’s from the neighbors’ back yard. Have shot at it in pretty bad light for the last three days. Need to get there a little earlier to minimize shadows, but I cannot seem to manage that lately. But…it’s just a remarkable plant. Cannot think of another that I’ve seen a wider variety of pollinators on. Bumbles, wasps, flies, honeybees, natives, etc. Really neat stuff. If I can find the time, I’ll do a big bonus blast of all of the different critters I shot on it. Maybe this winter?
Anyway…love this bee. Great beeface, beeneck, and beetongue. Plus a bonus, out-of-focus wasp. Neat plant.
Bee 034 – Asters…but a Two-fer
Honeybee in flight and one of the many thread-waisted wasps. Hard to shoot those because they sure don’t hold still.
Bonus 003 – Paper Wasp on a Geranium
Rozanne again. And a great wasp face.
