I attended the 4-H Sparks Fair at the University of California, Davis campus with my Tuleyome coworker Bill Grabert. Since Bill knew the campus better than I did, we went to the fair in his car.
Before heading out, we stopped by a rose bush in his front yard to check out the circles cut into the leaves by Leafcutter Bees. As an added bonus we found some Green Stink Bugs nymphs, probably in their second or third instar, standing beside the eggs from which they’d recently hatched.
You never know what you’ll find out in nature — even in your own front yard.
