Saw this pretty caterpillar on my way out of the building.
It is the caterpillar of White-headed Prominent (Symmerista albifrons). Quite misleading since its caterpillar form has an orange head.
Then I was walking around looking for things to photograph. I didn't see much until I saw this bee hanging onto the thistle flower in the wind.
Every time I try to take a close-up photo it is a windy moment. Most of these photos are only good when viewed small.
This bee belongs in the genus Megachile because of its large mandibles. And this is a female because of the hair underneath its abdomen (somewhat visible in the previous photo).
Large mouthparts, for leaf-cutting perhaps, since they are also known as Leaf-cutting Bees.
Saw a rainbow on my way back home in the evening.
