While watching the Praying Mantis
She spied me!
These are wonderful insects to have in your garden. As a child I got a nickel for finding one of these and relocating it in our garden. Lady Bugs, the real ones, were a penny apiece. I also earned money by removing potato beetles. The Adult was worth a nickel and the young were a penny apiece. I became rich!
I am glad to see any pollinators but the honey bees have become a rarity.Echinacea is now growing its second round of blooms while the others prepare to seed.
A pair of Pearl Crescent Butterflies, I think, dine together.
Sometimes I have trouble identifying them, Alex.
If someone knows the right name. please, let me know.
