If you have been on the Red Cedar Trail recently you will have noticed that the Touch-me-nots are blooming all along the trail. The Spotted-touch-me-nots are the most common.

There are also a few Pale Touch-me-nots blooming.

A local report on the news indicated that we have been overrun by Japanese Beetles again this year. I have been finding them out in the Prairie. Since I didn’t put a garden in this year I’ve not had to contend with the them. This pair was mating. As an indication of how devastating they can be the one beetle was eating while mating.

On several walks along the Red Cedar Trail I’ve been able to photograph a number of insects.
