Well, I’ve had pretty much zero time for blogging since the last post on Friday and won’t have time to blog again until Sunday, so this is going to be a light week. You’ll get a double dose of Swarm Sunday this week, but until then I can at least throw a photo up for Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday. This week, I present a pair of soldier beetles in love:
Found these little lovebirds (and hundreds of their closest relatives) on a flower about three weeks ago at the Duke Gardens in Durham, NC. The gardens were so wonderful that I actually took more photos of flowers than I did bugs. That’s a rare thing for me! But now I feel like I need to get in all the insect photos I can. It’s cooled down a lot over the last few days, so it’s only a matter of time before winter sets in.
