Posted on 2021-08-142021-08-21Early morning to early afternoon Briar wanted to go out around 4am. I found this nibbled out Bisbee red cowpea flower. A pair of Red-banded Hairstreaks mating. They must have started yesterday as I can’t imagine they were flying at night. Alright actual morning, the chewed up flower still opened! A bit of rain seems to have the Bisbee red cowpeas really blooming! A tepary bean flower! She had a piece of grass on her nose, silly dog. A break indoors. Gram’s really lounging hard. A close up of this hard working kitty cat. A geometrid moth trapped in the shower. I released it outside. Front porch is boring. She sits next to more strawberry runners I’m capturing in dirt for a coworker. A Pearl Crescent sits on moon and stars watermelon leaf which is speckled with “stars”. A different watermelon flowering. I forget which variety. A jumping spider patrolling the cushaw squash vine Briar investigates. An American Bumblebee (Bombus pennsylvanicus) in the loofah gourd flower. The volunteer loofah gourds are really framing the rain barrel nicely. A different loofah individual has made itself a ground cover for one of the apple trees. The whole front garden.
