Progressing . . .


In the forest and along the marsh road, White Snakeroot are progressing.  Some are just starting to open.  Some are in transition, and some have gone to fluffy seed. A predator has found one a fine perch in one for hunting.


Enjoy!

Good Little Soldiers


Among the beetles and bugs at the park, some good and some are bad for the plants.  One of the good guys are these little Goldenrod Soldier Beetles.  These good soldiers feed on aphids and other soft-bodied insects.  Their larvae feed on the eggs of beetles, grasshoppers, moths and other insects.  They are an organic gardeners friend.  I found a bunch of them busy on some Wild Quinine at the park, it may have their 'singles bar' of sorts - a number of them were finding mates there.

Enjoy!

Unusual find


This afternoon had a little wind with occasional gusts.  Perhaps that is how these egg shells stuck to a feather landed on this milkweed leaf.  A few minutes latter another gust blew it away.

Enjoy!

Catnip and Blazing Star


A number of Cabbage White butterflies have been enjoying the Catnip along the marsh road. And I watched an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail spiral up a Prairie Blazing Star along the creek.  I think it didn't want to miss one!

Enjoy!

Dozens Hidden Below


The lake outlet is down to a trickle.  And below the sky rippled reflection, something is moving.  Dozens and dozens of crayfish can be seen crawling around the rocks below.

Enjoy!

Clearwings and Tigers


A small handful of Hummingbird Clearwing can be found flitting around the Wild Bergamot with a number of bees.  Some people call this flower Bee Balm.  

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail are also out now as well.

Enjoy!
