  1. Very cool shot! I’ve never seen a hoverfly quite like this! I’ve become so enamoured with them lately I’m trying to ID all the species I’m spotting in my garden, but am finding that without being an entomologist it’s proving really difficult.

  2. We went on vacation to Badlands, in South Dakota, and the spiderwort was a wildflower I had trouble identifying- we don’t have them in the mountains. It wasn’t in the wildflower book I brought, so I drew it and looked it up in a wildflower book in the park bookstore.
