Wild Life

August 8, 2010

Biodiversity means lots of bugs, birds, butterflies, etc.  Here are some of the small things I have seen this year.

So many bees in the garden.  Bees and wasps of every kind.

Wasps are living in both bird houses and here in the fence pole.

We wondered if this was a hummingbird on the Joe Pye Weed, but it turns out to be a clear-winged moth.

The dragonfly enjoyed sitting on this sunning stick.  More dragonflies this year.

This “grasshopper” sat on the sunny creeping charlie for about 10 minutes before I came over to shoot this close up.

This mammal has been seen roaming the garden in the evening and on weekends.
