Rhinoceros Beetle (Xyloryctes jamaicensis)
I found this nearly deceased beetle while hiking at Ferne Clyffe State Park. When placed under magnification, I was amazed at how furry he was.
Three-Spotted Horse Fly (Tabanus trimaculatus)
One of the largest flies I’ve encountered. Drawn from a deceased specimen found in a greenhouse in Champaign, IL.
Progressive Bee Fly (Exoprosopa caliptera)
These bee minics are often found lounging on the side of my brick house in mid-summer.
Western Hemisphere Sweat Bee (Agapostemon viresces)
This small bee is often seen in orchards and flower gardens.
