for those who just love taking pictures of insect I thought I may as well finally share this years pics of common or uncommon insects, join in if ya like.
the parasitic wasp was a pain in the arse when getting a good picture of it.
the cobalt beetle depends on feeding from the leafs and larva which consumes, I read that they produce weird smells when disturbed but that wont deter me from capturing some for the huge milkweed patch Ill bee growing.

thanks, I have been trying to Identify as many insect as I could in my gardens, some dont even show up in some field guides which makes Identifying that much harder.

nice one, I tend to have a harder time getting bumble bees because when I get too close they spring up fly in circles near you then take off.
