Deer Park Prairie ... Last Video Shoot

Della and I put on our rubber boots and sloshed through a very wet Deer Park Prairie to finish some B-roll video / photos for the last in the NPAT video series. Liatris and gaura were finally showing their beautiful skyward 'legs', as were all our exoskeleton little friends. A couple of new insect species delighted me to no end (they always do, don't they?), so I'm hoping the iNat community will help me with identification in those. I scrubbed some decent photos from video taken of the 'new guys.' Shooting the brand new tiny peeps with the big lens is not preferred.

I really look forward to seeing the finished product linked on NPAT's education prairie. Let's keep Texas prairie ... and teach it to future generations!

Description

There was a bee sentry flying back and forth (center left) that I was unable to identify. Bright green eyes and plump and orange as can be!
