Locust Borer (three photos)
I was taking pictures in my garden when I looked
down in the grass and saw this Locust Borer trying
to get up high enough to take flight. So I sat down in
the grass to take photograph. © Carol Davis 9-17-2021
All it wanted was to get over to the Goldenrod.
While the larvae dine on the insides of Black
Locusts, the adults dine on nectar from this

This Locust Borer was sipping juices from a dying tree in
Sugar House, along with a friend, the Bumble Flower Beetle.
My niece, and her son, found it. It is a gorgeous, but
very destructive, insect. © Carol Davis 9-13-2014
