On a day I had close encounters with wild mountain lion, grey fox, javelina, raccoon, skunk, and white tailed deer, somehow I thought that this guy was the most impressive! Unique to Arizona, this unicorn mantis does an exceptional job pretending to be a stick! [12-8-17]

When a bee pokes it's tongue at you..
European Honey bees (Apis mellifera) are an introduced species in Australia. The impacts these bees have on our 1500 native bee species and other pollinators appear to be poorly studied.
You are what you eat! This little caterpillar was found snacking on the red flower of this Abutilon pictum aka Flowering Maple. The pigment from the flower has literally dyed this caterpillar. 🐛🌷🤗

Just did the final cut of arugula on this bed and found dozens of ladybugs feasting on the aphids that are attacking the elderly arugula. This bed of arugula is on its way out. It has provided its harvest and now in its old age is more susceptible to pests. Good thing #naturesalwaysright and there are predatory insects just waiting for this opportunity to dine. Don't hesitate pulling a plant or bed that is becoming infested with a disease or pest, better to lose a couple plants to nip the problem in the bud than an entire bed.
