Locust Borers?

  1. There were hundreds of these all over goldenrod in the field. High shutter speed as it was quite windy.

    Thanks John…

    …for posting this image. I have many black locust trees, some of which show signs of borer damage. However, I have never witnessed the responsible critter. In looking at your photo and then the many others on the Internet, it became obvious that the adult has a liking for goldenrod. It didn’t take me more than 15 minutes to find one on the goldenrod in my pasture. The wind was blowing quite hard, but I managed to get a couple of photos – not as good as yours, but, when the wind dies down, I’ll try again.
