    This is too sad.

    Don’t you just love crab spiders!

    What bugs me are the papers on how useful native flowering plants are for supporting biological control organims where crab spiders, ambush bugs, and the like are counted along with the parasitoids and wasps as if they were all equal.

    Is the flower a sneeze weed (Helenium spp.)?

      Crab spiders are fun. This one kind of caught me by surprise. And obviously the skipper as well.

      Sneeze weed sounds right, although I don’t know much about plants.
