On a walk along the Red Cedar Trail we found a number of interesting insects including the first ever Black Swallowtail Caterpillar.

Walking around Hoffman Hills the last few weeks I have been able to find a wide variety of insects. This is getting to be a good time of year to look for insects.

While out looking for flowers to photograph I also have encountered a number of insects. Once you get down on your hands and knees it amazing what you can find. As you can see the Milkweed is ready to bloom and the Milkweed Beetles are already active.
