Really, it wasn't in my plans to stop at the willow patch.
Someone had already taken the spot where I was going to park, so I kept on driving down the dirt road. That's when I saw this patch of willow shoots by the side of the road.
What I saw in the willows will keep me busy for a while.
I'll share some of what I saw in the willows.
I took this amazing photo of a metallic green Halictid bee covered with hitchhikers.
Come back soon to see some more of what I found in the willows when I post about the hitchhikers on this metallic green bee.
Incidentally, I forgot about my original plans back the road at the occupied parking spot. Now my car might be parked at either spot.
