Skipper on scrub oak at Roxborough State Park,

This fly does a good job of pretending it's a bumblebee.  It's with a Light-Blue Beardtongue, or Narrow-Leaves Penstemon.

I love sitting in this clover and taking lots of pictures of bees.  According to "Guide to Colorado Wildflowers" by G.K. Guennel, it's Yellow Sweet Clover, Honey Clover or Melilotus officinalis.

Spring Re-emergence

I've returned to the blog-o-sphere with a new, functioning camera, a Canon EOS T5i.

 It was a beautiful day with lots of bugs to find. I'm not sure what kind the Spotted Towhee bird found. As for the others, I think the butterfly is a fritillary, maybe a Northwestern.  The ant is herding her aphid cows on a yucca.  The green (or gray depending on your point of view) sweat bee is in the flower of a ball nipple cactus.  The hover fly is on a daisy, I'm not sure if it's a spreading or a sprawling daisy.  Finally, the unknown species of dragonfly is on some thistle relative. Sorry for the lack of specificity on that last one.
