I made it on Sunday this week...we were gone to a wedding, but we are back and managed to catch some insects and bugs in the garden.
Last week I commented how some of my old bee friends seemed to have been replaced by new ones...I was happy to find this week all past bees and the new ones all at the same time! So we had the honey bees, mason bees, "leaf cutter", the black with white hair, and the little black with yellow pollen sacks...here are some shots.
This week the real highlight is some new bug (also in the first photo). I don't know what it is...it looks like some relative of a milk weed bug, but we don't have milk weed and this one didn't seem to act like one...
Update: Thanks to Cheryl's lead in the comments I now know this is the adult Squash Vine Borer (Melittia satyriniformis) that happens to be a type of Wasp Moth. My complaint is that it looks so nice to be a "bad guy". We will see how the spaghetti squash, pumpkins, and cucumbers fare with evidence of these around.
It sort of buzzed around and hovered in front of flowers...at first I had though it was a red colored bee, until I got a good look.
See here the white bands and the long fuzzy back legs kicking to keep a hover...
Whatever it is, I so far have seen one...but it has been present throughout the week.
