Backyard Bugs . . . A 2 for 1 Post

Golden Net-winged Beetle . . . Dr. J spotted this guy while we were hiking down Bark Camp Creek Trail (which I think is one of the prettiest trails in Kentucky).

The Velvet Ant . . . also tellingly known as a Cow Killer. It is not actually an ant, but a wingless (at least the female) wasp. And the sobriquet Cow Killer is for a good reason.
