I just read that Junegrass is favored by deer, so it's not likely to last long in our yard. Sigh.

Great shots, silverclaw. I've never seen green dragon in nature--only in books so far.

1) Bumblebee on yellow flowering butterflyweed.
2) Two rival colonies of Pavement ants.
3) Crematogaster cerasi at a drop of honey.
4) The Carpenter and the Lion, a Camponotus worker sipping honey next to a predatory insects. Not an ant lion but very similar looking lacewing larva.

Very cool, MrILTA,

I can't decide which is cooler: 2) Two rival colonies of Pavement ants.
or
3) Crematogaster cerasi at a drop of honey.
