Now, back to the regularly scheduled programming....I love photos of insects, and have been chasing them a lot this week. These are not all great photos to me, but they are all very recent photos I've taken of insects enjoying the splendor of the blooms :)
These buggers are hard to capture! I have one (forgot to post that one) of 2 of them getting cozy on a rock by the river. It was windy and the stalk kept blowing and the butterfly didn't want to stay put. LOL.
Queen Anne's Lace is one of my favorite summer wildflowers. When my surfers were here, we picked some and were going to dye them, until I realized I didn't have food coloring at this point in time. Whoops. They are delicate and gargantuan at the same time....love love love them.
This little bugger wouldn't hold still, either. Actually, Calliope and I were both chasing the dragon yesterday, it seems. He was smack dab in the middle of poison ivy...stinker.
And this, my dear bleeps, is my favorite photo of the summer so far (though the fly from the the zoo trip is way up there on the list). I adore sunflowers. Favorite flower, hands down. And that's hard for me to say. This photo is untouched, original, no photoshopping!....I am IN LOVE WITH IT. I just ordered myself an 8x10 for my "flower" room.
So, I hope you enjoyed this short trip down insect lane.
T-minus 1 day....here's hoping I am as pollinated soon as these flowers are :)
