Bee on Chive

I have a few chives that are putting out a second bloom. My gardens are FULL of bees now due to the Sedumn Autumn Joy.

That is something I may not have warned you all about. If bees, hornets, wasps, etc. bother you, don't plant the AJ! They all love it and it is not uncommon to have 4 or 5 of the various stinging insects swarming around each plant. They have never stung me, but I still get a little nervous when I have to get this close (within 3 or 4 inches) to get a close up pic.

I don't know what this caterpillar is.

I really don't know much about bugs, insects, etc. I just like photographing them.


  1. It may be a relative of the Gypsy or brown-tailed moth. The Gypsy's have more spikey things and they are yellow in the drawing. Moth's like you!

  2. What plant is it feeding on?

    And have you been able to get a look at what's flitting around the garden?

    Lovely caterpillar, isn't it?
