GreenBugs Vidler's Alpine
Vidler's Alpine commented on by GreenBugs British Columbia, Canada9 years ago

nice to get pictures of both the top wing view and side wing's very helpful for identification purposes

GreenBugs Blue-eyed Darner
Blue-eyed Darner commented on by GreenBugs Redmond, Washington, USA9 years ago

the thoracic stripes on the top and side of the thorax suggests its a Blue-eyed Darner. Nice shot in flight.

GreenBugs Orbweaver (female)
Orbweaver (female) commented on by GreenBugs Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada9 years ago

Not 100% positive, however it looks like araneus nordmann, a common Pacific Northwest orb weaver...the cross garden spider is more common in gardens

GreenBugs Pipevine Swallowtail
Pipevine Swallowtail commented on by GreenBugs Florida, USA9 years ago

The white dots at the bottom of the wing above the brown spot suggests it's a Pipevine Swallowtail

(Battus philenor)

GreenBugs Horace's Duskywing ♀
Horace's Duskywing ♀ commented on by GreenBugs Florida, USA9 years ago

Pretty sure, but not positive it's a Mournful Duskywing (Erynnis tristis), part of the spreadwing skippers group

GreenBugs Monotrope Uniflore
Monotrope Uniflore commented on by GreenBugs Québec, Canada9 years ago

Nice picture. Late summer blooms of many Monotropaceae species can be seen in Western Mountains right about now.

GreenBugs Common Chicory
Common Chicory commented on by GreenBugs Brantford, Ontario, Canada9 years ago

Common chicory, Cichorium intybus, it's actually not a native floweing plant...Jeferson, for example, imported it into his colonial garden, however it's got both practical and aesthetic utility

GreenBugs Summer Tanager
Summer Tanager commented on by GreenBugs Georgia, USA9 years ago

It's always nice when the tanagers come to the fruit for dinner. NIce picture.

GreenBugs Hanging Thief Robberfly
Hanging Thief Robberfly commented on by GreenBugs BNI, Bolivia9 years ago
