Foraging For Borders

A rape plant in my flower bed is coated with aphids!

Most of the year the conditions are too hot or too cold for an aphid bloom but the timing is just perfect for this nest of Borders.

Proud papa Border can't wait for me to get out of site to try some aphids!

Momma keeps an eye on me and is not happy to be photographed! Her look is a warning "Don't push your luck!"

But seeing the aphids, she quickly hopped down and started filling up with aphids to feed her babies!

I will only have aphids for a few days and I sure don't want to get these plant sucking bugs on my orchids but I just could not resist giving the excellent mom a helping hand!
