What's the Buzz?
I just thought it was time for a new picture.Way past time, actually. So here's a yellowjacket on a goldenrod in front of my house. I don't know what species it is, and I probably won't be able to figure it out from this view. Bugs can be so difficult to photograph because they always seem to move just before you press the shutter. Perhaps my next post will do better--I sprayed a yellowjacket nest at my neighbor's house (it was by his deck stairs and people were getting stung). I took a couple of the bodies home to identify, and will get some pictures of them motionlessly posing (with a pin through the thorax).
