PhotoHunt: Foreign

Polygonum cuspidatum

A bee on Japanese Knotweed, a foreign invasive brush that is very prevalent in New Hampshire. I have even seen it cultivated here. The insects love the blossoms in late summer. This was taken in the summer of 2009.


Thank you for visiting.

  5. Terrific shot, and the depth of field is perfect. I also loved the shot of your piano in a sling. Didn't know you played. A Glenn Gould fan too!!! Some day I must tell you my mystical Glann Gould story.

  9. Ooo we have those here in NY, too! They are pretty but too invasive.

  10. Wonderful photo. So many things are transplanted from foreign parts and instead of being a delight become a nuisance. And not only plants.

    Have a good weekend.

  14. Great close-up of the bee. I like the detail.
    Non-native plants are a big issue around here, too.
