I have never looked at a ladybug this close.
I found this bug on the Evening Primrose, next to the Crab Spider, and the caterpillar from yesterday. It reminds me of a 1938 Buick 8 front end. Or one of those classic ribbon mics from the 40’s. Update. ( I think The Flying Squirrel solved this. ) ” At that size, I have to change my answer. It’s a leafhopper. Same family as cicadas, but smaller, and still have the Buick front end. That would also explain the short wings. A true cicada would be the size of your thumb”
I went out to do my Twenty Minutes In The Garden. When I walked in the house I was as excited as I was when I took pictures of the Blue Heron. I still have ten minutes to go for my 20 minutes out there. But this one deserves it’s own post.
At this point I am like where is the head? Got it, they are busy eating Evening Primrose.
When I had the full face in focus I promptly named it Fuzzy. Funny, the older I get, my hair thins and stands exactly like this, but Rebel Girl takes care of my eyebrows and ears. 🙂
Share a link to your Twenty Minutes in the Garden in the comment section. Then we can all see what’s happening around the globe.
I walked around my garden not expecting to find anything to take pictures of. Although the weather is beautiful out things are dying back fast
I spotted a mosquito hawk hiding on a raspberry leaf.
I’m not sure what this is but six of them are eating our asparagus.
And this guy who is definitely not out of place.
Summer is now hanging by a thread
My entry for Cee’s Just a Fun Challenge: Hidden
This is my entry (Rebel Guy). And it is my first challenge that I have participated in.
I was wandering my cucumber garden and spotted something big and dark hiding in a flower.
At first had no idea what it was. I honestly thought something was wrong with that flower. Peek A Boo. It ended up giving me a few striking poses 🙂
Spider stretched out enjoying the early evening. I have no idea what kind.
