DOWN BY THE POND

I went for a little stroll by the pond today.  The milkweed has dried up and the pods have burst without me seeing one single monarch catepillar.  Oh well, maybe next year.

I did come across a locust resting in a pod.  It was quite relaxed and I probably could have gotten an even closer picture if I had a close-up lens.

I completely overlooked this beetle at first as I tried to get a picture of a fickle butterfly.  I had just about given up on a picture when I caught a movement out of the corner of my eye and this little guy stepped into view.

I have no idea what this plant is.  My older sister (and up and coming photographer) hates when I post things that have not been formally identified, so for Islandredbird's sake I shall call this 'fuzzy white flower'.

The seed head resembles some species of clematis - could it be that do you think?
