It’s Definitely Insect Season Again

Eastern Carpenter Bee
Evidently a Two-spotted Bumblebee. Carpenter’s don’t side-saddle pollen like Bombus.
Cabbage White on Phlox.
Some kind of meadow bug, I think.
A click beetle, Sylvanelater cylindriformis
Not a great picture, but the first Primrose Cochylid Moth on Inaturalist for Brooklyn.
Osmia mason bee (perhaps).
One of the many, many Andrena genus mining bees.

The weather has been fluctuating. Days in the 50s aren’t very bug friendly, but once we start hitting the sunny 60s, they emerge.

    It’s insect season at my Ozark cabin too. This year they seem drawn to the back of my neck. When I reach back there to swat them away, I find it’s actually my pandemic pony tail tickling my neck!
