A metallic Blue Beatle munching away on the last green leaves of the season. When the flowers fade away, the birds have all flown south, the mammals are few and far between the insects are just a bit easier to see.

We found this to be a peculiar looking fly perched upon one of our favorite late summer wildflowers…Pearly Everlasting.

Yes, I hear you, bugs as a title is perhaps a bit derogatory and in no way a fitting title for the above insects but this guy below…?

I am not quite where what this fellow is but the word bug does seem apropos.

    Tis the season of the insect. It’s special in its own right but I enjoy hearing birdsong in May versus crickets in September πŸ™‚ Great post!


  2. I’ve been shooting a lot of insects this year so happy to see some of yours. I agree with Mike about the last one being a robber fly. Bugs is kind of a catchall phrase and confusing to some as there actually is a family of insects called “True Bugs”. Catching mama spider with all her babies is a nice image.


    1. Hi Steve and thanks. Insects seem to dominate the area right now or perhaps we are paying more attention to them. We have the utmost respect for insects and the title post was just a catchy name. Hope you’re doing well and enjoy the week.
