One of these days I might settle on a particular subject of interest…insects, flowers, landscapes, water in motion…there is just so much in Nature to experience and I have never been able to narrow my pursuits into one area. Generalists…stand tall and be proud! 🙂
Locust Borers (Megacyllene robiniae ) visit our boneset every year. As with Ambush Bugs and Crab Spiders, they can often be found on Goldenrod as well. These Longhorns don’t lie in wait and just go around gobbling up pollen from flower to flower. In between floral hopping, the female adults lay eggs in Black Locust trees, which we are fortunate to have a plenty. The larvae overwinter under the bark and feed on the tree before pupating and emerging as adults in late summer…like now.
