It’s time for dogbane beetles again. A cloudy, rainy morning recently was perfect for photographing these beautiful, iridescent insects:


Time for me to revise my notes on finding dogbane beetles. I wrote a few years back that towards the end of the summer is the best time to look. I’m now finding them reliably when the dogbane starts blooming, towards the end of June to the beginning of July. Last year, my first sighting June 26th, this year it was July 3rd.
