Insects

5 A Honey Bee enjoying the first nectar of spring last year. That was March 16th of last. Not like this spring but we are close after the snow melts away. The Bee is on a Crocus Flower that come up in our yard every spring since we've bean here. They started this spring but they've bean under 3 feet of snow since last week but it is melting off. Well, enjoy these shots from last year blooms. 71110

31 This collection of insect pictures is from this year and are taken from some of the adventures that I've gone on in my area of NYS. I'll try to name some of them, but I'm not totally sure if they are correct for any of your areas. Some may have different name based on your geographic location. This first bug, I believe it to by a Banded Net-wing. Quit common here. insects-04646 A Leaf-footed Bug of some sort. insects-02926 A Spotted Asparagus Beetle. insects-0077 Spotted Cucumber Beetle. insects-03636 A Katydid. insects-0055 A Forest tent caterpillar. insects-01313 Bulb Fly. The next few images I have already previously used on this blog, you mite remember one or two of the images. They are some of the better pictures of insects that I have taken in the past. Enjoy :) bees-all-031Insects 017Bees & All 012Insect 028Butterfly 079Bees & All 008Butterfly 124Dragomfly 006
