Thought i'd start a thread for all the crazy insects and things with wings that have been plaguing us this summer.
Spiders and bee's seem to be running amuck here in Maine and we were attacked by immature june-bugs the other night. Seriously killed over 100 in a half hour on my front deck, did you know they bite?
Ronnie has had some neat looking visitors (Katydid) and some creepy ones too(cluster of red bugs).
I thought we could post them here and give Allison some creepy idea's for her Halloween display all at the same time. ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

1.& 2.) Is much lighter colored than what im used to seeing. She? made her web in my heather.
3) This is the darker color im used to, this one made a web in my sib. iris foliage.
4.) Did not see the spider that went with this web, but the web was face height...5ft. It was built in a dying lower branch of my fir tree out front.
5.) This looks like a big beautiful squash bloom, and it is...but how often do you see 3 bee's side by side inside one flower?

Bee's...I need not say much on them, you all know what happened to Brian. I do believe it could of been a fatal had it been someone else beside my BRUTUS, I mean Brian. (grin)

Horn worms...can't forget about them! However, we sprayed once and haven't had a problem since.

The best kind of things with wings! Birds!!!!!!!!
Cedar Waxwing was caught inside my hubby's truck one morning, it flew out after I opened all the doors.
Five days later I saw or rather heard the babies up in the nest...glad I got her out of the truck. :)

Glad the birdie got out, too.

Spiders creep me out, but I am mesmerized watching them make a web or wrap up anything in it.

DGD in Annapolis caught a katydid and had it in a container. Needless to say it didn't make it. I tried to tell her it would be better for creatures if they were left in their habitat. She put it in the frig to see if that would help. Wonder what her mom says when she finds it there.

Borer beetle, nasty tree root eater...Leopard moth...,One of Brian's buddies...

Great photos! Love the cedar waxwing, although they love to eat the farm's blueberries...my son's FIL is getting an audio cd that will supposedly scare them away...that leopard moth is fascinating...don't believe I've ever seen one...latest to get stung was my son weed whacking...about 6 stings before he realized what was happening...

My friend the woodpecker...if there is no suet in the feeder he'll tap on the house until we fill it!
I believe this is why he/she has been so demanging...if I'm not mistaken, this is a baby Wood P.
They abandoned this one, wonder if they made a bigger one? :(

Really great pics, everyone! Bill, I love the tree frog. Really cool.

Here are several shots of a Marbled Orb Weaver. I found this guy in one of my coleus cuttings. Didn't even know he was in there till I went to strip the lower leaves off of it. I touched it before seeing it, and it fell out onto the floor. It was really sluggish from the cold, so I put it on a plate to photograph it. As you can see in the one shot with the penny, he is just about that size. My nephew was fascinated, and my friend Gretchen was having an anxiety attack over it. I let it go after my nephew and I took all the pics we wanted.

I don't know what kind of spider this one is. There were a bunch of them on the tops of some trimmed yew bushes outside of a local library.

I guess that I would be odd man out! I find spiders cool. Ronnie's picture reminds how last year I had a "giant jumping" spider in my mailbox. On closer inspection she had a whole bunch of babies. I enjoyed watching their development.

Spiders I can deal with. Yellow jackets, no. I happen to like spiders, but not in my house. They usually get squished in the house, except for that marbled orb weaver. I just couldn't bring myself to squish it. Where do they go in the winter? Do they hibernate, or do they die?
