WILD LIFE ON PLANTS (庭の生き物たち)


This morning I found some wild life on flowers.  
In the kitchen garden, a small beetle was walking on a pink dahlia flower. 
This beetle, a black cucurbit beetle, is harmless to most plants in the garden, 
however, it looks like a rose sawfly (Arge pagana), which is a typical pest of rose, and it is important to distinguish it from the sawfly. 

Black Cucurbit Beetle (Aulacophora frontalis)
クロウリハムシ
 今朝花に生き物たちがいるのを見つけました. 
ポタジェではピンク色のダリアの花に小さな虫
このクロウリハムシは庭の植物にはほとんど害はありませんが、
バラの代表的な害虫のチュウレンジバチに見かけが良く似ているため
それと区別するのが大事です. 


There was another insect on a orange dahlia.  
This grasshopper eats leaves of many plants in the garden. 
Most leaves of this dahlia have already been eaten. 

Grasshopper (Atractomorpha lata)
オンブバッタ
 橙色のダリアには別の虫がいました. 
このバッタは庭のいろんな植物の葉を食べます.
このダリアのほとんどの葉は食べられてしまっています. 


On a flower of Rosa 'Scarborough Fair',  there was a tree frog (Hyla japonica).  
It is an ally because it eats bugs in the garden. 

 バラのスキャボロフェアの花の上にいたのはアマガエル
虫を食べてくれる味方です.


And there was another ally on a branch of acacia.  
A young green mantis was looking around. 

ミモザの枝の上には別の味方の姿、
若いカマキリが周りを見渡しています.
