  1. No clue on the beetle! We have similar plants... same genus different species on most of the others. I like seeing the variety.

  2. Fine set of shots Carol and Arnold, you found a lot more species than John and I, he he maybe we should tag along with you, thanks for telling us about the bee orchids they are fabulous flowers but hard to find



Let me know you looked in :)
