Mason Wasp

photograph of a wasp with blue wings

When I think of the color of bees and wasps, I think of yellows, oranges, and reds.  This little Mason Wasp is black and white with beautiful blue wings.  Sadly, it flew away before I could get a another photo showing more of the wing.  From what I’ve read, they mainly feed on nectar and caterpillars.

Busy Hummingbird Feeder

Photograph of four hummingbirds at a feederThis hummingbird feeder was literally buzzing with activity.  Here you can see three female Ruby Throated Hummingbirds perched on the feeder.  They all stopped to look as the male approached from the right.
