    Things my plants ate..

    I always like seeing exactly what my plants had caught. Hopefully more people chime in too. This week? Nice shiny beetle!

    A spider


    This one is from last fall, when I cut down my Leuco pitchers for winter. Decided to have a peek inside. Some things were still alive - like the earwig:

    That's because earwigs are robots or something. I used to find them under my bed for some strange creepy reason growing up, and once I put one in rubbing alcohol in a sealed jar on a window for a week in the sun. It was still alive after that week.

    Dunno. Don't think mayflies. Maybe a large lacewing or other neoropteran. Key characteristics for May flies were hind wings small we than fore wings. Both look about the same.
