I have talked before about how much better our native bees, like bumblebees and leafcutter bees, are at pollination than the honey bee.

This is a perfect example of that. Those long hairs of the bumblebee are the perfect invitation for the pollen to go along for the ride. As the bee visits more and more flowers, the increasing pollen in the hairs starts to drop off onto the next flowers. There is a constant turnover which increases the likelihood of pollination.

These bees have done a tremendous job on my sunflowers this year. Now, the birds are enjoying the bounty as they collect the seeds to consume or store for leaner times.

If you couldn't tell, I love my garden. I come home and let the chickens and Tabitha out into the yard while I easily spend forty minutes out in the garden looking at flowers, their seeds and the insects that have made my garden their home. The season is almost over though and all I have left are some calico asters (Symphyotrichum lateriflorum). I'm not the only one that's sticking their nose into this last bloom of the season. It seems like you can find almost every order of insect on these bushy flowers. It's the only nectar left before winter comes. Hidden in the middle of one of my bushes is a collection of potter wasp vases. There are several genera in the subfamily Eumenidae, which are all wasps that create homes for their offspring, usually made out of chewed plant material and mud. Female adult wasps will make this structure and lay an egg inside of it with a plethora of paralyzed spiders, beetle larva and other little insects for her baby to eat when it emerges. I hate the grayness of Instagram in the winter 😫 #eumeninae #hymenoptera #vespidae #wasp #potterwasp #vase #insects #insectsofinstagram #entomologist #ecology #winteriscoming #calicoaster #symphyotrichum #symphyotrichumlateriflorum #aster #fall #ig_insects #entomology #garden #wildflowers #hiddentreasures

This photo is perfect for today, because I'm teaching 2nd graders about some of my favorite creatures, insects 🐝💨 #hymenoptera

Even within the wasp/bee order sawflies get an unusually bad rep, so it has been a pet project of mine to make it a little easier to see their beauty. Photo from UT Insects Unlocked 💛

From Saturday: Bee and purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) both relishing the last few warm days of the season. Lovely garden @vclavenderhouse! Thanks for the delicious coffee!

Sawfly larva being stalked for purposes to reproduce by a Hymenopteran could be of the braconidae or ichnuemonidae family. I don't know specifically what it is but curious to know. #hymenoptera #wasps #sawfly #larvae #adult #mature #insects #insectica #hexapoda #bugs #nature #insectphotography #entomology #macrophotography #canonphotography
