A Few Insects and Flowers

 

Blow fly (aka bottle fly) on a Shasta daisy.

 

Skipper on a cosmos.  I pretty sure that the holes in the petals are the result of spotted cucumber beetles grazing in my garden.  I don’t have any cucumbers in the garden so I guess they think flowers are fair game.

 

Another blow fly.  Sometimes their coloring is a bright metallic green with people referring to them as green bottle flies.

 

Zinnia in full bloom.

 

Zinnia not in full bloom.

 

Remember last post when I warned you that you would probably see more zinnia photos like this one.  If nothing else I am a man of my word.

 

Thank you for stopping by.
