Good Bugs....

A ladybug working on a daylily leaf (lots work to do...get those aphids!)...


What I think is a paper wasp...the larva eats insects...


I have these two handy charts of good and bad bugs and it appears to most closely match the paper wasp...a bunch of species (like 24 or so...)...this is a tiny thing, as you can tell...the Rose Campion 'Occulata' is not a large flower...

Without the wasp...


My first tomatoes...Early Girl....now, if only I had planted my other tomato plants, they'd look like this, too...


Of course, there are a few daylilies blooming...

ARTIC LACE...


TILTING AT WINDMILLS....


BALLERINA ON ICE...a fav year after year....


Non-Daylily (*grin*)....


and...a fly...a tiny one...

I thought you should know that the 'paper wasp' you have on your good bugs page is actually a species of Hoverfly. Many Hoverflies, AKA Flower Flies, are wasp mimics so this is a common mistake. :-)
