Yeah, you see those little thrips on everything. Most are mostly harmless, but some can really damage sensitive garden plants.

Anyone care to hazard a guess about this little fly with a white abdomen? I'll upload to Bug Guide. You'll also see some thrips. The flower is a Daisy Fleabane, about 10-15mm diameter.




Try genus Nemotelus

Things are only just warming up here, no flies wasps bees or anything, except for an abundance of ladybirds, for some reason, hundreds of them in the garden.
Here are a few, all shot on plants in the garden, handheld with, K1 + lester dine 105mm + bellows + ringflash

I didn't see this one til I got back inside and photo loaded on the computer. Shot with a 35-105, with DCR-250 on the end at 105mm



He or it must be very tiny because the flower he's on is very tiny too.

Tha's an impressive group. Your hands are steadier than mine to be able to hold in-focus even using flash, although that is damning by faint praise.

Not enough space to show all the ones that were just a tad (Or a lot) focused in front or behind 😂😂😂

I'm very gracious, and I'll gladly accept your faint praise 😁😁😁

A dewy dragonfly from an Autumn gone by. There's a particular area I know which about September is usually reliable for finding these insects being wet and lethargic in the early morning.

I knew this was recent, it would be frozen, not dewy, Walt. Nice shot. I can never seem to get up early enough to get shot like this. Or dew is not there because we have so hot seasons the dew is gone before day light.

There has been a male monarch in my yard for the last few days. Today a female joined him. Then a second one joined him so he's having a good mardi gras. They flew around and layed eggs for an hour or so and left. I just went out to check the eggs and the male attacked me. I had to stay motionless for 5 minutes before to get within 5 feet of him. The females were less skittish. Here's the first one laying an egg. There was even a few eggs on the tops of leaves.

Sorry this series also includes a crab spider - who is kind of integral to the image. The capture had already been made when I saw the Ulysses butterfly in the Ixora bush twisting in the wind. the unusual movement caused me to get out the K-3 and the Macro end of the DA16-45ED.

I don't mind bitty spiders, Arjay, I just don't like the ones that are huge and in my face spiders......like tarantulas. or enlarged garden spiders.

Looks like he/she is going to eat for days, or wrap it up for later for the kiddies?

Or perhaps just suck the juice out and drop the rest like an empty fish and chips wrapper - I will keep an eye out and let you know.

Or that too. I wouldn't know, I've never had fish and chips and don't know what wrapper they come in. We have fish and coleslaw. No fries unless you ask for them. Or we have fish and pork and beans with onions and mayonnaise mixed in. The last is usually a home thing, not a restaurant thing.
