Green Nature Horsefly
Horsefly commented on by Green Nature Oregon, USA7 years ago

actually, it looks like a deer fly in the Hybomitra genera. The Western Horse Fly is usually the species scene in OR. Bother horse flies and deer flies have those nice looking and colorful eyes. The body of the fly suggests a deer fly.

I would guess a hoverfly also. It's always nice to see that different fly species look similar in many parts of the world.

Green Nature Giant mushroom
Giant mushroom commented on by Green Nature Alameda, California, USA7 years ago

this is just a guess, no species, just genera. As the Amanita species grow old and withered their edged tend to turn up, showing the gills like the one in the picture. Many Amanita species are also known to have very large caps.

Green Nature Honey-bellied Green Bee
Honey-bellied Green Bee commented on by Green Nature Newport Beach, California, USA7 years ago

A nice looking sweat bee. They do great at pollinating and their abdomens are often a yellow and black stripe or a white and black stripe.

I always enjoying seeing butterflies from around the world. Very nice picture and description. We mostly have brown metalmarks here in the US.

Green Nature Gopher Tortoise
Gopher Tortoise commented on by Green Nature Florida, USA7 years ago

That's a very nice shot. The tortoise still has a nice looking and shiny shell. I've seen them on both the east and west coasts of FL.Hope he or she grows to a ripe old age because FL is attempting to increase and stabilize the population.

Green Nature Eastern Comma
Eastern Comma commented on by Green Nature Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA7 years ago

well, here's another choice, the Green Coma. It's common in Iowa and the dark edges around the wings are a good field identification clue.

Green Nature Ichneumon Wasp ♂
Ichneumon Wasp ♂ commented on by Green Nature Alaska, USA7 years ago

After looking at all the pictures, it looks like an Amophilia wasp. The thread-waist gives it away. Otherwise, great golden digger wasps also have the black and red abdomens. Amphilia are not at all aggressive and they help pollinate flowers.

I also think birch poypore because there are not many bracket mushrooms that have a kidney shape. They tend to grow in singles. If it were something like oyster mushrooms, you would have a bunch of them growing together.

Yes, cabbage white. One little known fact about them is that the spots help determine gender. Males have one spot per wing, females have two spots per wing.
