Posted on 2022-06-102022-06-10 by the_dr_blue06/10/2022 exciting friends I wasn’t sure at first if this was a bit of debris on a bird seed sunflower stem. But I saw it walk!! It’s a plant hopper! I think it’s Entylia sp, possibly carinata if I understand bugguide saying there’s only one species and it’s quite variable. That’s the species shown in the new Abbott and Abbott Texas insects book. Spittlebug adult! The most special flower. A beautiful white lined sphinx visiting the non native verbena. I love the different wing angles the camera catches. Side view. Slime mold very happy after 3.46″ rain in the past seven days. Blurry but you can see two seedlings: the winecup above with three leaves and the lyre leaf sage with two seed leaves. Working on my ground covers out front around the raised beds.

Also had a white lined sphinx yesterday. But i didn’t get a photo. Great job! And what a special woof flower. 😉
Woof flower is prettiest of all. Love sphinx moths.
