Broad-Necked Root Borer Part Deux

Site 2

Just over 2 years ago, I met my first broad-necked borer it was large and looked intimidating. I read up on them a bit, but I have not seen another one until 2 days ago. This time on my wife’s potted small sunflower plant. Its ovipositor was not visible, but I don’t know if it is a male or female. Although it did seem a bit smaller than the first one. Also of note this little superzoom camera has some wonderful macro capabilities. Since its slow owl wise for the next month or so hope you enjoy these closeups.(per usual click picture 2x to see larger version)
