So much epicness! Really tired so I'm just gonna list them all and ramble later:
TWO Tiger Swallowtails OMG!
1 Silver Spotted Skipper
2 Lopidea sp. (One landed on me)
2 Eastern Commas
1 American Hoverfly?
Clear Wing Moth!! (Hemaris diffinis or H. thysbe?) Oh. My. God.!
American Bumble bees (Males everywhere on Buckeye bush)
1 Honey bee
Hover Fly (Brown not sure of the sp.) *Thinking Pseudodoris clavatis it's very variable
Thrips or beetle larvae in a Datura (?) flower
Male Mosquitoe or Midge
And a lacewing on my terrace window....♥ Epic!
I'll ramble properly about all of this later. Also the "Great Carpenter Bee Mystery" has been pretty much solved after my observations today. My suspicions about the whole thing have been right all along. Smh........*Major facepalm* There were lots of bees today. My somewhat mystery digger bees, some of which might be mining or plaster bees.
Not too entirely sure. And I won't be unless I catch one (impossible) so the only other option is to get photos (possible since there was one today that was very friendly & photogenic). Not to mention the second tiger swallowtail I saw today was very photogenic and friendly but it wouldn't let me hold it. >_<
Hehehe. That's fine. Someday though...........I hope. *^^* Enjoyed seeing all these and a proper rambling shall occur later since I know someone's wondering what the "Great Carpenter Bee Mystery" is.
And I'll tell you later! ^_______^
