Happy Mother’s Day!

Rose Aphids – Macrosiphum rosae
Tucson, Arizona

Thanks Mom, and happy mother’s day!

    Happy Mother’s Day, Mrs. Wild!


  2. Would this be the same Steve that used to hang out with Alex (at age 8?) reading insect guides for fun, and who once on a ride back from our place on the hill slipped a live garter snake through the hole in his pantleg, a snake which was never seen again? I hope it’s you! XXXMrs.W.
