Wool Sower Wasp Gall

My first reaction: "What on earth is this crazy Willy Wonka fuzzy ball growing from a thin branch on an oak tree I don't understand how this can be real and also WHAT IS IT"
Small black bees on dry dirt with hole

Miner Bee (Andrenid bee)

These bees all seem to emerge on a warm day, right next to my driveway, buzzing about like crazy. Thankfully they are not aggressive!

Tiger Bee Fly

It was the Tiger Bee Fly's idea to post on my Honey Bee Suit (and this is actually a fly, not a bee, but don't tell them that).

Monarch Butterfly

If you can believe it, this butterfly can travel between 50-100 miles a day. I mean, I can't even walk that far in a day. Impressive!
