Once again I'm out to find some insects in the garden. It has been a hot weekend. This last week I have spotted some new bees visiting. This guy above and the next two pictures below is kind-of funny. I am lead to believe it is a male leaf cutting bee (genus Megachile)...I haven't see any cut leaves though.
Here's a better view of his back...
In this shot you can see the front leg (with the whitish hair puff) cleaning the antenna. I guess these ornamental front legs are characteristic of the males.
I got a bumblebee! I head it "bumbling" and had to run for the camera to catch evidence it was here.
I spotted this larger type of hover fly...it's much bigger than the normal ones like in the next shot.
One of our "normal" hover flies.
Look who found the brassicas.
Look who grew up from last week... okay I'm betting it's not the same individual.
Just a damsel.
Thanks for stopping by...now go see what's in your garden!
