(Yep – that’s how i meant to spell it… 😉 )
I was in my driveway with my camera the other day when i saw/felt something flutter onto my chest.
I was a little surprised to find it was this…
I was even more surprised to find they stayed in this position when i squeezed the hibiscus leaf between them and my shirt!
I am not completely sure what they actually are… they don’t even look like the same species?? The closest i can figure is the big one is a female Hibiscus Sawfly, only the ones i can find pics of all have black bodies as well as black wings and this one has an orange body under the black wings? Male sawflies seem to have the same orange thorax as the female whereas this ‘guy’ is all black?? Note the weird shape of the female’s head compared to the ‘normal’ fly head of the male!
Weird! Anyone have any ideas what they are?
They were flying around 3 hibiscus trees.
