Saturday Entry

It's fun to be able to add a few critters from the Northeast coast of Maine for Eileen's Saturday Critters:



Birds were enjoying the harbor at Camden.

I took this picture of a rose on the bushes along our porch at the rental house. Anyone know what these are?

I don't have any pictures of them, but we do have lots of mosquitoes in Maine!

Have a great Saturday!

Interesting assortment of waterfowl.

I am guessing thsoe are Japanese Beetles. They are awful on roses and an invasive that has become established. They destroy roses. I spend most July killing them in my flower beds.

Gosh mozzies! There are a few as we travel and stop...they don't seem to like me..
The Rose is pretty..

Hello, the ducks looks like they found a happy spot. Pretty images. I agree that the bugs on the roses are the Japanese Beetles. They can destroy many plants and the roses. :(

Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

I hate mosquitos that's one reason I'm happy living in the desert-no mosquitos!!!

Linda W. said...

Pretty rose! Enjoy your weekend in Maine.

Rose said...

We have the mosquitos here, too....and those are Japanese beetles I think.

I love the ducks! The rose made me sad, because the Japanese Beetles are killing it. They are invasive and so very destructive. It looks like you are having fun.

The rose does look lovely!

For some reason I didn't think you'd get mosquitoes in Maine? I guess I thought they were more likely to live in the tropics.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I was going to say beetles of some sort and looks like others have already said that. The birds look like they have found a lovely hangout!

Margaret Adamson said...

Cute birdies! Unfortunately, the Japanese beetles are an invasive pest.

Looks like those beetles are dining well on the beautiful rose!!

Love the bird photos too Linda.

Amy at love made my home said...

No, sorry, no idea on the bugs on the rose, shame as it is a beautiful flower otherwise! xx

Love the quarried rock bride and the fowl enjoying the area.

They look like what we call a June bug but I think instead they are the Japanese Beetle. They begin as a grub in the ground and change into these. we have two main types in our area, The June Bug with an amazing Green shell (these are the ones you fly on the end of a string) The brown beetles is what we called Chicken bugs because the chickens loved them, I guess. The brown mostly come to the light at night, the green eat all day...and they like roses.

Enjoy your vacation and thanks for coming by to visit my blog.
