JudyCrawford Red Velvet Ant
Red Velvet Ant commented on by JudyCrawford California, USA2 months ago

The sting of this insect is almost as bad as that of the Tarantula Hawk. They too paralyze their prey and lay their egg on it for the larva to live on.

Very, very painful yes, but dangerous only to the tarantula and those who are allergic to the sting.

Thank you so much Lisa for giving me the identification of this flower. It's been driving me crazy.

I'll check into it further Lisa. At least this is a lead and if it takes me to an identification, I am forever grateful to you!

Thank you LIsa. The Texas Bluebell doesn't quite fit this flower. I did wonder if this is a Gentian of some kind, but they all have the same shape, same darker throats with yellow stamen/pestal (I'm not up on flower parts) no matter the petal color. It's driving me crazy looking for an ID.

Can anyone tell me what this is? I've done numerous searches and postings trying to find an ID. They are abundant in the areas they grow.

Thank you Ashley. I kinda wished this one was more speckled, would have been easier to identify. We've so many different kinds of rattlesnakes in this desert and I've only seen 4.

Nice shots and good catch. He's so much darker than most of the Red Tailed Hawks we get here in La Paz County, Arizona.
