A Great Day for Bugs
These two photos are a hint of what a wonderful day it was for sightseeing in nature. Everywhere I saw tansy it was covered with grasshoppers and a bug I don't know, and, in one place a mating pair of Ambush Bugs. The Oak Treehoppers on my driveway oaks have been on the same branch for over two weeks. I assume the young ones are growing ever so slowly, but I was not able to measure them. I'd estimate these were about 1/4" long at most. Incredible pattern makes them look like little mechanical toys. More photos from today's adventures will be posted tomorrow.
