Bugs at the Ranch

Back home in the height of summer 
and seeing lots of bugs

 This angry looking fellow was trapped inside an empty flowerpot 
and when I dumped him out, he wasn't too happy.
But he found his way to the grass & escaped.

 I spotted this hummingbird moth on some bee balm along the trails.

 Bee balm, or monarda, is quite enticing to lots of insects.

This pretty ladybug was checking out the blooming milkweed.
