Hoverfly on Coneflower

29 08 2010

Hoverfly (also known as a flower flies) photographed on a Coneflower (Echinacea). These tiny flies have honey bee-like markings, but are harmless. Many species of hoverfly larvae prey upon pest insects, such as aphids and leafhoppers, making them a natural means of reducing the levels of pests. Hoverflies also like alyssum, buckwheat, chamomile, parsley and yarrow.

Sunset in Belfast, Maine

28 08 2010

Oh, if I could only fly! While in Belfast, Maine on Monday, we heard about a street festival downtown and decided to go check it out. As we were coming out of an art gallery, we noticed the intensely colored clouds—too bad I couldn’t have positioned myself in front of a more interesting foreground to take advantage of that gorgeous color! Hey Dad—don’t these clouds look like they belong in an N.C. Wyeth painting?
