Yesterday George found this very interesting looking insect in the garden. It turns out it is a snakefly – I got an ID from Davesgarden.com, which is a great site for all things gardening. It’s a beneficial insect, predates on many garden pests, like aphids and others. I had never seen one before today!
Here are some photos of this interesting creature:
