Nos. 1 and 2 appear to be sweat bees (Hymenoptera: Halictidae); the insects in no. 3 are too small/indistinct to identify; they could either be small wasps or flies; no. 4 is a bumble bee (Bombus sp.); no. 5 is a leafhopper (Hemiptera/Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadellidae).

while looking for mini-macrame I decided to catch more bugs-on-blooms. Hope you like them! (These diversions offer breaks from finding Peregrines)

Took the monarda photos this morning, the Michigan lily has a hidden bee camouflaged with pollen.

Michigan lilies are so pretty. Ours have yet to open but I think I may have stalled their bloom by moving them this spring.

I found a patch of emerging milkweed on the farm so I have a ton of stuff to share here but it's late so I'll just share this for now.
