July is summer in Carl Schurz Park

We are really looking forward to the possibility of a soaking rain, as we have had a drought for the last couple of weeks, with hot temperatures and strong winds adding to the drying effect.

Nonetheless, all the flying insects of summer are hatching out, and dazzling us with their beauty and pollinating abilities. There are numerous different species of bees, from extremely tiny to quite big bumble bees, and several large spectacular wasps too. The solitary wasps, like the magnificent Eastern Cicada-killer Wasp, hardly ever sting, and don't represent a threat to humans, despite their awe-inspiring appearance.
