Thyme has been in full bloom in the garden, and I noticed a couple of pretty iridescent green flies hard at work, going from flower to flower.
I didn’t know some flies preferred flower nectars! That means they are also pollinators. The discovery made my day. (^^)v
Among the most beneficial bugs of the garden, I like spiders. Most of them moves away as I weed, but my favorite are orb weavers. I used be afraid of spiders, which turned out to be just another fear of unknown. As I learned more about them, I’ve come to appreciate them more.
Speaking of mosquitos, dragonflies also eat them! Their larvae eat mosquito larvae in water, too. Fantastic creatures! I love how they look at us in all curiousness.
What are your favorite bugs?
