|June 2013: not shy about raining. |
We may break
All this rain and green means there's lots of bug activity out there. Here are some of of Medlock's busy bees.
|Tomato fairy godmother: this tiny bee is loaded with white pollen|
from working the tomato blooms.
|Same tiny species as above (?), working the bee balm.|
|Here's a bumble bee, executing a typically graceful face-plant on a bee balm blossom. Notice the size of this bee|
to the flower's stamens: it gives a good perspective on how small the bee in the previous photo is.
|With so many bees around, who shows up if not the dread tiger bee fly? It's a fly that feeds on bees. Boo, hiss.|
The wings have clear spots that give them a tattered appearance.
