So I got some free seeds of Ceratotheca triloba Alba, which have grown into lovely plants. This is an African (South African I believe) flowering annual that resembles foxglove and is called South African Foxglove for that reason.
As soon as flowers began opening, these very small and delicate bugs -- wasps? moths? I can't tell! -- appeared and started slowly crawling around and mating on the flowering stems. I see them nowhere else and they seem to be doing no damage. No idea what they eat, but I would love to know their names and any info anyone has.
Very hard to get a clear shot of these; though they move slowly, they notice my attempts to focus the camera and usually move right out of the way by the time I have managed it. I have taken maybe ten shots trying to get a clear one. Hope this one is good enough!
What do you think?
