It was a beetle day. Another pesky one and a favorite. The red milkweed beetles are a favorite because they give great shots that are funny (to me). The imported willow leaf beetle was a surprise: I thought it was an alder flea beetle. All these are in the superfamily Superfamily Chrysomeloidea. That includes the St. John's Wort beetle, also. It must be that time of year. Aphids are thriving. St. John's Wort beetles are happily munching. It was a good morning. I really want to take a course on taxonomy nomenclature. I don't know where yet, but I'll find something.
