Today, spotted a caterpillar (likely moth) + a couple of Monarchs + Cabbage white + a cottontail + Honeybees and Bumblebees + Sweat bees (or Carpenter bee), hoverflies and Condylostylus flies + Oriental beetle + Stink bugs...

  • Note that the Biodiversity records are not showing all of today's records yet: once we have Jeanine's observation, they will be.
