bigger printable when she responded to my last post about our September study.
Here are some highlights from the insects we have seen in September 2012.
|"Love bugs." I don't know their real name,but they swarm twice a year in|
this area, and pollinate plants, but are considered a nuisance
because there are so many of them when they swarm and they
leave marks on vehicles.
|Longtail skipper. This is the butterfly|
that makes leafroller caterpillars on
green bean plants.
|Another butterfly. Swallowtail, I think.|
|Some type of beetle and their larvae in a log.|
|Look closely. Do you see the tiny dots in the middle?|
Those are lacewing eggs. They are suspended from a tiny
thread from the green bean vines.
|Tiny leafroller found on my green beans.|
|Some type of dragonfly.|
