Bugging Me

The box elder bugs? Are everywhere. And? They're mating. And the little baby non-flying ones are all over in the leaves, too. At least in my box-elder-filled yard.

Actually, it was rather a good insect day. Saw several odonates, including an Eastern Forktail, which I did not photo, monarchs, swallowtails, sulphurs and whites; grasshoppers are everywhere leaping out of the way as you walk through the plants. A leafhopper landed on me, and some sort of leaf-camouflaging insect. Bugs galore out there.
