beetle sp. on desert sunflower (Gera canescens)
My first post to the oly board. Greets all!
We have been having record rainfall out here in the desert Southwest (CA, USA). As a result, the wildflower bloom has been the most intense in recent memory.
I'd like to share a few of my favorite shots (so far) of some of the flora and fauna that have colored our normally stark, beige desert into a kaleidoscope of colors!
This is an unknown beetle sp. (I'm a marine biologist, not an entomologist - maybe someone here knows?) feeding on the pollen of the desert sunflower (Gera canescens).
