If you find a hornworm covered in larvae, leave it be. It will not harm your plant under the extreme duress of being eaten alive.
You know you’re a to do list addict if you have multiple to do lists reminding you to check your to do lists. Often, the items on those to do lists are repeated on other lists in order to remind yourself just how badly you want to/need to do them. What’s currently on your list?
I thought woodpeckers pecked trees and metal rain spouts, but not this guy (gal?). He was hard at work at the pavement in the alley. I quickly snapped this pic and, in a attempt to get closer, chased him off his hunt. I believe he is a Northern Flicker Woodpecker.
