It turned off chilly this morning, too cold for this bee to be active. It doesn’t look all that comfy. There are other sorts of insects out this morning. My eye was drawn to this wheel bug on my sweet basil:
It was moving, albeit very slowly. I think that may be due to it’s natural hunting technique. It places one leg at a time, stalking through the foliage. Note the “fang” folded under it’s head. It uses that to stab unwary prey and suck their innards out
The best part of this meal were the hash browns and the beans, the post title notwithstanding. A little bit of fresh rosemary in the potatoes made them taste good. Mixing them with the gravy in the beans put them over the top.
