This little red assassin bug (left) is considered “highly beneficial” despite its sinister name. It eats other insects that are considered “pests.” Although its bite can be painful, it isn’t toxic or dangerous to humans.
Bees, too, are important to our survival. That doesn’t stop me, normally, from doing a frenzied sort of dance-and-run-while-screaming routine when I find myself in the midst of 2 or more bees. Does this little guy look huge, or what?
Busy little bees with pollen dusted feet.
If you know me at all, can you imagine me there, calmly waiting for them to alight long enough to focus? All my attention narrowed to that one goal – getting a photo as they flitted from one blossom to the next. I’m still sweating.
