At my patch

Another blistering day, eh.

Since I was up early this morning I looked for a meteor. No luck, but I get bored really fast when craning my neck up. Guess I need to put out a chair. LOL

We have a really nice patch of Greeneyes (Berlandiera betonicifolia)!
Critters were flitting about like this Variegated Fritillary!
The young Garden Spider had attached its web on the Greeneyes. And made a successful catch!
A black wasp was having a sip too!

Gray Hairstreak!
Sachems were not shy either.

So my favorite on the patch this morning was Great Golden Digger Wasp (Sphex ichneumoneus). I just love its golden hair!

Ok this is not from today unless you count me editing it. After seeing Kathy’s cuckoo yesterday I thought you might like this from our water feature in our woods.

  1. One can really see all the colors in the cuckoo feathers in that video – nice!

    Amazing how folks can figure out all those geologic events that happened so long ago. And someday I hope to see a red rainbow!

  2. I love the cuckoo. Thanks for finding and sharing the video. Glad to see so many insects. Not many here☹️

  3. And you had two of them in that video too! Just love the colors. The bathing one didn’t look very coordinated.
    I need to be taking notes of what plants seem to thrive in this drought so I will plant more of those. Like these Greeneyes.

    1. The first cuckoo looks a bit drunk?😂 The Greeneyes last all summer and drought resistant! It would be a great plant for someone’s wildscape.
