Life is Sweetest at its Edge

Life is Sweetest at its Edge
A wasp-mimicking beetle. At over an inch long, this striking creature is the Locust Borer, Megacyllene robiniae. It’s one of the longhorn beetles; its larva bores into black locusts, while adults like this one eat goldenrod pollen.

The conspicuous, brightly colored adults appear when goldenrod is in bloom. Adults are most abundant during September, when they are commonly found feeding on pollen of goldenrod blossoms.

Nature preserve, September, 2012
