Details matter. Nature’s attention to the insect world never ceases to delight.
While chopping firewood, the strange-looking larvae start to drop from holes in the center of the hickory tree. The birds seem to relish in the special winter delicacy as if someone lifted the top off an aromatic pot of soup.
The hidden larva is from the Cerambycidae family. The Round Headed Borers larva is a new species for me to observe.
The orange spots add great color.
Enjoy your day!
