Center Stage
Center Stage

The laid back and unaggressive Great Golden Digger Wasp lounging and sipping nectar from the Snow-on-the-Mountain. If you enjoy macro and don't have a Snow-on-the-Mountain in your yard, you should seriously consider one. They serve as center stage by attracting endless numbers and varieties of insects between August and November. Taking seed orders now!

Oh, Jim...my heart, my heart!! A complete stunner this fellow is...I have to get snow-on-the mountain in my perennial garden next year - captures like this are just too good to let pass by without it! Well done, fellow Texan!
