How to impress me...
1) Post several beautiful images of this lovely little species to the guide.

2) Reference Joni Mitchell.

3) Make me laugh.

You're three for three, Ron...

My pleasure, Harsi.
I wish Kenny were still posting. We had some fun!

I'm Still Here
I'm still here, Ron, just busy as all get out these days! Plus, I need to expand my coverage area - I've run out of different insects in my yard.

Oh, good!
Nice to hear from you...and to know you're lurking.

Lurking? Makes me sound like a stalker or something. I'm going to have to devote a little time to Bug Guide so I'm not lurking anymore!

Nice going, Ron...
Way to shame Kenny into spending more time here! (*smile*) Not that I mind at all... I like reading his comments too.


I Wonder
I wonder if this specimen is a female? If so, you could name her "Joni."

Or if a male "Mitchell".
Guess we're covered either way. LOL!

I Literally
Laughed out loud it was so funny! Good one, Ron!

Glad you liked it.
Judy Collins to block.
