Normally I am not a fan of wacky hybrids, but this fuzzy Leucanthemum 'Sante' is delightful. #leucanthemumsante #shasta #daisy #shastadaisy #maine #Leucanthemum

This absolutely gorgeous beetle is called a Meloe proscarabaeus also known as an Oil Beetle or a Blister Beetle. There's some pretty strange stuff that they are capable of... "Oil Beetle (Meloe proscarabaeus): A Blister Beetle. So named because "they release oily droplets of hemolymph from their joints when disturbed; this contains cantharidin, a poisonous chemical causing blistering of the skin and painful swelling. Members of this genus are typically flightless, without functional wings, and shortened elytra." " BUT THATS NOT ALL! They are also hardcore Bee Killers! ... "Eggs are laid in the soil by females. When the larvae hatch, they climb into a flower, and await visiting solitary bees. With their well-developed claws, the larvae attach themselves to the bee and return with it to its nest. Here, they feed on the bee's eggs and the pollen and nectar it had collected. The larva pupates in the bee's nest, and leaves the nest to seek a mate directly afterwards."

Some things make getting caught in the rain an enjoyable experience, like a newly discovered animal bone. (Or coming out of a heatwave) #loganmcgillicuddyjones #caughtintherain #Maine #redponyfarmme #catahoulasofinstagram #catahoula #catahoulaleoparddog #catawhat
