Today’s Critters

Today was a beautiful day and I was able to spend a little time wandering around with my camera.  There were lots of cool insects out.

This viceroy was taking nectar from rattlesnake master.

An eastern tiger swallowtail was working the coneflowers.

This widow skimmer hung around the prairie, looking for small insects to eat.

An ambush bug caused the demise of a Delaware skipper.

This is a female eastern pondhawk.  The male is light blue and looks like a completely different species.

It was a nice day.  A great day to be outside with a camera.

  2. Hi, Chuck.
    These were all taken at my place, in rural Dallas County. Some were taken along the road ditches, some in our flowers.
