This is the first time I've seen one in my flower gardens, which go back several years. I've never had a vegetable garden, is this a threat to flowers? It was on a Montauk Daisy.
Is it depositing eggs or eliminating waste? It ran quickly up to this area, as though it saw me, and deposited this. Then it turned around and stayed put.
