Black Swallowtail, Soldier Beetles, and more

This afternoon at the Bracebridge Ponds a Black Swallowtail seemed to be searching for something along the mowed edge of the roadway. Eventually she found it - a small group of Queen Anne's Lace plants, where she laid some eggs. If you see a Black Swallowtail in your garden, check the parsley and dill, which are also larva host plants.

There were several goldenrods in bloom, some with large numbers of Goldenrod Soldier Beetles.

The bench with the wasp nest has been flipped back so the nest is more visible now. At the south side of cell 4 I noticed another very active yellowjacket nest...look carefully before seeking shade under the small trees there.

This young Green Heron was stalking grasshoppers and even tried to catch a passing butterfly...a treat to watch.
