That's gold, Jerry! GOLD! firstname.lastname@example.org Mon, 09/24/2018 - 14:40
I'm an unabashed fan of common goldenrod (a.k.a. Canada goldenrod). Its flowers are an important late-season food source for pollinators drawing in a wide range of insects and their yellowish to gold-tone makes a nice photo backdrop. In fact, this native perennial offers a pollinator photo op paradise.
Beetles on Goldenrod email@example.com Mon, 09/26/2016 - 09:55
Goldenrod (Solidago spp.) is in full bloom throughout the state. Soldier beetles (Chauliognathus pennsylvanicus, family Cantharidae) and locust borer adults (Megacyllene robiniae, family Cerambycidae) are commonly found on the flowers of this beautiful native plant adding to the plant's interest to entomophiles.
