I spent the late afternoon at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana, IL capturing a few images of some of the insect activities going on throughout the park. The world of arthropod interactions occurring on goldenrod always amazes me. It is also my favorite plant for great photo opportunities.
Honeybees were out in large numbers this afternoon. I really enjoy photographing honeybees as well as ambush bugs, but don’t enjoy photographing the industrious honeybees losing their lives.
I never like seeing the last season changes that occur in the goldenrod. The onset of flower disappearance makes clear that I have only a few more weeks of arthropod photography this year.
