This isn’t one of the invasive ladybird beetles, it’s the twelve-spotted ladybird beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae: Coleomegilla maculata).

It’s time to harvest the basil and make pesto; this mirid bug is one of the many animals crawling on the plants.

I mostly saw seeds and burrs on my afternoon walk but managed to spot this meadowfly (Odonata: Anisoptera: Libellulidae: Sympetrum sp.) in a silver maple.

This red and black net-winged beetle (Coleoptera: Lycidae: Calopteron sp.) spent time outside my office window.

This stink bug (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae: Halyomorpha halys) squirmed around on its back for a bit.

A tree cricket (Orthoptera: Gryllidae: Oecanthinae) relaxes in the goldenrod among the many bugs.

Black Beetles

There was the most amazing insect watching today in the goldenrod (Solidago sp.) flowers.
There were at least five of these Epicauta pennsylvanica (Coleoptera: Meloidea) beetles running around the plants after one another. Mating perhaps?
Then there were predaceous ambush bugs (a lighter yellow female and a darker brown one) (Hemiptera: Phymatinae: Phymata sp.) mating and walking about.
And another ambush bug caught a honey bee in the flowers and was working on sucking it dry.
