J, He IS a big bee. I love Aubade.

It amazes me how you all know the names and varieties of all of these bugs and Birds. Confused

Mic, I was up in your area tonight. It didn't look like you'd gotten much rain. Did you?

Bee on White Swan

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Hummingbird moths are one of my favorites.

OMG - that Hummingbird moth shot is fantastic! I didn't know they had that coloration. Very nice, Ronnie!

Yes, the fly is a Syrphid fly

The moth is probably a Tulip-tree Beauty, Epimecis hortaria, but there are a few similar geometrid moths

Stormy, we got almost three inches of rain between 8am -1pm on the July 10th!!!
Another 3/4" today, hopefully more tomorrow.

We had company here last week, so I visited my friend Dan in Sally's area, and saw this zebra swallowtail, a first for me. The larvae eat pawpaw foliage.

There are more pictures of the zebra swallowtail on this other forum - actually we're having a little technical discussion over there. Some people can see links to our site, some can't, so I'd appreciate any reports on this one way or the other.

And Stormyla, please delete this post if it counts as spamming. I'm curious to know how it will work, though.

Here's an orbweaver that lives in woods, Micrathena gracilis
