Sunday’s Bugs

Sunday I was able to get out a little and take some pictures of insects.

This is the spotted lady beetle, Coleomegilla maculata on a spiderwort flower.  The spotted lady beetle is one of the native lady beetles, and is not terribly rare.

This little damselfly is an eastern forktail, Ishnura verticalis.  These are small and often common, but this year have been very common.  This is a male, and he has not quite reached the full brilliance that he will.
