There are a number of new wildflowers showing up in my backyard. I am not sure of the identification of the yellow, orange, and blue ones. Any help with the ID is appreciated. They could be native weeds, or perennial ones from the wildflower mix that I planted last year. The flowers on the rhododendrons are also starting to bloom. Because of the deer, my rhododendron learned to grow tall — the only leaves and flowers are above where the deer could nibble last winter. I hope to see and photograph some clearwing hummingbird moths on the rhododendrons again this year.
Indoor spring nature in New Jersey. A Brown Marmorated Stink Bug climbing one of my cactus. Difficult for it to get close enough to suck some sap from the cactus. Although this is not the first time I have observed stink bugs on my cactus plants.
