The new pond (built after the mass destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy) at Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve came alive BIG TIME in its second year of existence. The insect population hanging out around the masses of Bee Balm plants is almost unbelievable.
This Clear Winged Hummingbird Moth is captured heading into Paradise.
Congratulations to all the June Finalists!
