spider silhouette (large brown web weaver). When she heard me, she scampered up the web and hid in the leaves. In previous years, there seemed to be orb weaver webs side by side down the easement. This year, I've seen two.
this is her close up -- she's a pretty
black legged katydid. I have not seen the number of katydids this year I'm used to seeing. I was delighted to see and photo this one.
red-tailed flesh fly (Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis) Creepy scientific name
Megachile bee upside down in false foxglove with pollen on belly
paper wasp on goldenrod. I just liked the contrast of colors
orange-legged furrow bee on camphorweed. This is the time of year for camphorweed and goldenrod -- lots of yellow in the easement
tiny crab spider on camphorweed
unidentified species of fly
hairy fly (possibly Juriniopsis adusta)
Possibly Pimpla pedalis wasp
mason wasp (Euodynerus megaera) on aster
unidentified bug on camphorweed
true katydid nymph (Pterophylla camellifolia) on camphorweed
Ailanthus web worm moth In years past, it seems as if there would be one of these on practically every goldenrod. This year, I saw only two of them.
