Name this critter! a friendly and growing community of gardeners. We feature a Garden Discussion Forum and Garden Photo Gallery. It's a fun and friendly place to talk with other gardeners, ask questions, share you knowledge, view and post photos and more! Whether you're a master gardener, or brand new to the hobby, you'll find something of interest here.



Was wondering if anyone was interested in playing a Critter Game.The poster can either post their pic with no information except for where they found it and time of year; or if you don't have a pic, you have to give a few hints on the critter, any fact you may know about it.
To prove your naming is correct you can then post a link to where the pic is after a few guesses.

The winner then posts their question or picture.

Hope all Gardening Posters are interested...Butterflies are included.

Here is my 1st one. Found on a rose in September.

Any questions?

Yes it's hard to believe, but carpenter bee's re beneficial. To be so destructive boring into wood they do a lot of good, pollinating flowers and vegetables just like other bees. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
