Blue-faced Meadowhawk

The Blue-faced Meadowhawk (Sympetrum ambiguum) is a colorful fellow. The male sports the blue eyes and the red with black rings on the abdomen. The female has brown over gray eyes and the abdomen is tan with blackish incomplete rings mostly.

A delightful find!


This Crab Spider (Thomisidae) waiting for a meal on Eryngo (Eryngium leavenworthii). What a way to live. I like getting my three meals a day.

Garden Webworm Moth  (Achyra rantalis) also on the Eryngo.

I am guessing a spider. It looks pretty cool. An airy cocoon inside a webby covering.

This is what the eggs look like. The eggs are about .76mm (less than 3/64in) in diameter. I’m going to see if they hatch for me. 

Keep on looking!
