Nice illumination from backgound. :D Are they specialized for cucumbers only? 8)
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

P.S.
Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

Hi Nikola, Thank you for your comments :wink: . Host Plants: Primarily cucumber, cantaloupe, squash, pumpkin, gourd, and watermelon but may also feed on beans, corn, potatoes and other crops :shock:

In other words the world is its smorgassboard. :lol: You certainly still got a lot of insects around for a guy living up north this time of year, I thought it would be cold up there already but since I have never lived that far up I really would not know. However did spend some time in the Arctic Circle, while in the Navy. Brrr........ :shock: Nice shot Doug! :D

The temps have still been around 65--75 during the day, lows in the low to mid 40s. Only have a few flowers left on the cucumber vines, don`t expect any more cukes. half of the state has already had a hard frost.
