And it stayed there all day...
The Daily Bucket is a place where we post and exchange our observations about what is happening in the natural world in our neighborhoods. Birds, blooms, bugs & more - each note is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the patterns that are quietly unwinding around us.July 10, 2013
Here's some photos from the other morning after I left the outdoor light on all night.
This colorful beauty was upside down all day and then was gone sometime near sunset.
I have yet to go to bug guide to learn any of these, maybe later.
I know I have seen this one before as the tail sticking up is memorable.
At least this one found a bit of shade under the siding.
And this one with the feathery antenna...
This one I know - it's a Milkweed bug. Too bad this one has arrived late; lots of them were here 2 weeks ago. I'd see a dozen at a time and some of those paired up. But since there is plenty of common milkweed up and blooming, maybe it should move on down the road and hook up there. And get off my house!
Soooo wrong - LOL. Eastern Boxelder Bug (Boisea trivittata)
see this diary on milkweed bugs
Rain last night and early this morning here on the east shore of Lake Ontario. Big waves today! Sun should be out later and temps will be mid-70s.
A quick bucket for the day -
and The Daily Bucket is now open for your thoughts and observations...
"Green Diary Rescue" is Back!
After a hiatus of over 1 1/2 years, Meteor Blades has revived his excellent series. As MB explained, this weekly diary is a "round-up with excerpts and links... of the hard work so many Kossacks put into bringing matters of environmental concern to the community... I'll be starting out with some commentary of my own on an issue related to the environment, a word I take in its broadest meaning."
"Green Diary Rescue" will be posted every Saturday at 1:00 pm Pacific Time on the Daily Kos front page.
