A hawk is just sitting there, ignored by a crow. I wish I knew what was going on. I think maybe the hawk tried for a capture of a bird or a squirrel and missed but is in no hurry to leave. I have no idea why the crow seems so nonchalant.
Something has been sampling my jalapenos but I didn’t spot the caterpillar responsible till yesterday. I first thought it was new new one because I had never seen one with those white things.Next to the jalapeno is an ornamental pepper – a “Black Pearl”. It has a visitor with the same white things. A quick search online resolved the mystery, the caterpillars are the familiar hornworms with cocoons of a parasitic wasp.
