I was out chasing flyers today.
I found many butterflies,
I am glad I spotted this nest before the wasps spotted me.
I was pleased to see a Hummingbird clearwing/Hemaris thysbe in the mix.
Upon closer inspection, the clearwing was not pleased.
It was being eaten by a Green Lynx Spider/ Peucetia viridans.
This is the exact location I find a “Mama Lynx” every summer.
I hope I can witness the making of the egg sac and the hatching of spiderlings again this year.
Stay tuned for more wings.
