The small Autumn-flowering Orchids of Tourist Road are starting to flower.In addition, the insects have been swarming and Swallows flocking and swooping in the sky above my house. I love seeing Swallows, as there was a nest built inside my house when it was only half complete. Messy, but I take the European view of Swallows as being companion animals to humans.
note the "pollinia" dislodged by an unsuccessful pollinator.
|Dave Rentz advises me that this is a|
"species of Conocephalus, but I would need to see a male
and its private parts to go any further.
(How’s that for dodging the issue!)"
