  This wasp was scurrying about quite quickly on top of a fence post. It was difficult to get an in-focus shot. I had never seen a wasp like this. I had to look up what kind it was. The wings had some amazing color in them!     Photo taken in Kemah,...

Another flower macro. Caught some sort of green insect hanging out. Not sure what it is (grasshopper?), and though I suspect it's not a major pollinator, you can still see numerous bits of pollen stuck to its legs. The flower isn't going to waste an...

While opening the Bamboo Bee homes I came across a tiny predator. Well it cannot hurt me as far as I know, but they are destructive to Mason Bee cocoons. These tiny Wasps climb into the homes and take over cocoons which then kill the Mason Bee inside...

I have written before, however, that I probably was able to take a picture of the last butterfly in this year, as I became less likely to meet them. However, I was wrong! During last Sunday's walk, I was able to photograph four butterflies sitting on...
