Make sure to check your jeans for deer ticks and GIANT HORNTAILS?
New England Aster, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
The last day we will see sun forever, according to the local weather people, so I thought I should probably get a walk in. Good conditions for macro insect/flower photos.
Here's something on a late goldenrod.
And a tiny bee on an aster.
And a GIANT HORNTAIL ON MY PANTS.
To be fair, I more or less invited it to land on me, offering my leg as it flew in my direction. I didn't expect it to be quite so interested in my jeans, though. Once invited it apparently believed it owned the place.
I eventually was able to shake it off. And then it came back, this time intending to land on my hand. Not cool, giant horntail.
