By 10:30 this morning, the temperature was already 74°, so the beautiful syrphid flies were gone. I seem to have found a St. Johnswort beetle today: Chrysolina hyperici. My first one. I thought I had photographed the head, but was mistaken.

The aphids are flourishing. I could find no change from yesterday to today except for a population increase. Do the aphids congregate naturally or do ants herd them together? But I'm wrong, there is a change: the ants are different. There are a mix of sizes, smaller with larger now now. Usually they are all large and now there are many small ones.

The flash on the SX50 won't shoot, so now I am even more limited in shots. I have to get the SX70 off for repairs.
