On a Rubus occidentalis leaf in my sand prairie garden - these black raspberries are volunteers. Smallish, maybe 5mm? Pale amber wings and a conical abdomen.

On Rubus occidentalis in my sand prairie garden -- but I didn't plant these wild raspberries, they 'volunteered'. This is, perhaps, a bold ID suggestion but I've photographed A. alleghaniensis a couple of times before and felt I recognized it, and one of the prior instances was on a Rubus. (all three on white flowers). Probably these are a single individual.

A tiny bee collecting pollen on a Rhododendron (cultivated) at my home. Photos depict a single individual (a female). I'd say ~ 3mm, maybe 4. My first impression was Lasioglossum, but mainly based it being so small; also the face appearance.

On common brackens in a xeric sand prairie. There were many. The second photo may be a breeding pair, the third may be an ovipositing female. ID based in part on reference to this sawfly on the common bracken page at Illinois Wildflowers, but beware, I am by no means a sawfly expert.

I don't see a lot of pollinator activity on Viola pedata, but at least a couple Amblyscirtes vialis were nectaring when the sun broke through in the afternoon of what had been quite a gloomy day.

In a colony of blooming Lupinus perennis o. on a small sand dune in a sand prairie and black oak savanna and thicket area. ID with help from the ID bot but the pattern seems quite distinctive to me. A fairly small moth.

Part of a lively little cloud to these small moths a few inches above a large colony of Lupinus perennis o. on a small sand dune -- mid afternoon. The lupines are said to be their host plant, and I haven't noticed them elsewhere. The lupines were blooming but the moths didn't show any interest in the flowers that I noticed.

Descripción

On a Lupinus perennis leaf in a large colony. On a little sand dune, it was a reasonable match for the sand there. It looks a bit like a tiger fly, but the head shape seemed off somehow. Fairly small, maybe 4mm. It was associated with what appeared to me to be a breeding flight aggregation of Grapholita tristrigana moths -- possibly a predator of them?

Descripción

Two small flying insects I'm guessing are probably parasitic wasps -- they seem interested in a small black beetle that appears to be feeding on a wild strawberry blossom (Fragaria virginiana) in a sand prairie thicket. A cool midafternoon. Very small - about 3 mm. It seems creatures like this often turn out to be some kind of Braconid, but I'm still unclear on what characteristics support that diagnosis.

Descripción

On a west facing slope in an old oak grove sand ridge upland east of Bogus Run bottoms, an area that retains some of its savanna feel. If I had to guess, I'd lean toward this being var. pubescens, but fortunately for me I am under no pressure to make this determination. The colony was being invaded by garlic mustard, and I tried to control that a bit, but it seems hopeless.
