It's Sunday, and I have a Safari...even if it is gray and rainy right now. Next week I will probably be late -- we are going on a little vacation...some scenic roads, visits to parks, and camping. When I get back I can post my remote safari pictures. On to the today's safari...
Well, some of the lady beetle nymphs I posted about earlier have started their pupal stage. Now there are these funny looking bumps on the plants. I know it's perception, but it seems that these insects start as innocent looking eggs, emerge as fierce looking nymphs, form funny looking pupas, and end up friendly little ladybugs.
I caught this red colored dragonfly resting. I noticed and read that some rest with the wings forward like this.
The bumblebee is interested in the onion blooms. It seems to be "Bee" season here (when it isn't rainy) there are many buzzing around lately.
My "friendly" wasp is still hanging around. I believe it has a ground nest somewhere in the vegetables...haven't had a conflict yet (or found a hole). It should be okay as the area the nest is located doesn't need to be disturbed until fall cleanup.
I'm going to end with a fly...this one is more bronze or brown instead of the greens I have seen.
