Some kind of Sweat Bee, I think, but I don't know the kind yet. (Bugguide is on it!) Look at the pollen on that little guy! (Really happy with the crispness on him!)

And a lovely little Gray Hairstreak.

I also have a close-up on a mantis that is a little TOO close up. I can see fragments of its last meal on its face. It's actually a little creepy.

Predators and Prey

Okay, trying to put these behind a cut. Let me know if it doesn't work for anybody. If you are an in RSS feed and sensitive to unsettling images, LOOK AWAY NOW. I got two shots of predation going on. They are good shots but if they will trouble your sleep, look away.

This thoughtful mantis wants you to look away.

Okay. We shall assume that if you made it past the Thoughtful Mantis, you want to see this.
