"Nice Chris. Both are bees.  First one looks to be yet another Nomada sp.; and the second is probably a species of Lasioglossum."

Wasps and others on dandelions - 16 species!

In about an hour this afternoon (21 May 2018) I checked many "lion's tooth" flowers (dent-de-lion), better known as dandelions. I photographed an incredible 16 species of insects on these flowers, mainly because they are the only flower of moderate size anywhere this early in spring, so that's where the insects are.Revised list (22 May)Ants - 2 species: 3mm and 6mmBees - at least 7 spBeetles - 2 sp: a small black one and a fireflyBugs - 2 sp: a Lygus bug (Miridae) and a common damsel bug…See More

Hi Chris,
I applaud your suggestion for a group on moths! Would you like to add the group? I will certainly join, but I do not feel "up" to the level of being able to moderate it, although I can (and will) help with the technical (web-based) stuff.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for joining the dragonfly group! Although this site was originally called Birding New Brunswick, we definitely enjoy discussing all nature related topics that touch on nature in the Maritimes. If there is anything with regards to the function of the site in general you have questions about, there are lots here who are definitely happy to help. Like Bug Guide, we all all a bunch of volunteers trying to make sense of the natural world and still learning lots ourselves, but so far it has been a blast and has worked out very well. Enjoy!
