Beach Bug

I haven't had too many insects at the beach farm, but autumn is the time when most are out and about.

Including the pesky cabbage worms devouring the cauliflower and broccoli leaves.

And crickets on a nearby shrub.

And the grasshoppers making mincemeat of my chard (although seen here on the eggplant).

But then there are the monarchs stopping in much as the migratory birds do.

And the swallowtail making the most of what little parsely and carrot tops remain.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
