Cee really stumped me with the challenge Rainbow! It is to showcase at least 4 vibrant colors. Looking thru my photos I found one that had 4 vibrant colors. I’m a big fan of the primary colors yet most of my photos only had up to 3 vibrant colors. I found this one for you. It is an iris with some visitors. I like the purple, the contrast of the red bugs and then the green and yellow thrown in for some variety! Enjoy!
Sighhhhh… in looking thru photos in my library today I found this overlooked photo of a ladybug and a daisy. I fell in love immediately. Such a great photo with my readiness for Spring to arrive this year!
I found this little critter crawling along beside our grill the other day. I couldn’t decide if I should touch it or not but I definitely wanted photos of it!
See if you like it! And if you know what kind of critter it is be sure to share with us!
Well, it seems I did it again – caught some insects mating! So I’ll just get over my embarrassment and show you….
Here is the original faux pas…
What did I possibly find wrong with this photo? While I’m in love with the color & detail it seems wrong to have a fly with a little matching dark puddle beside it??? Like maybe along with the little raindrop the fly had a little leak?
I found this little ladybug inside the parking meter a while back. Thought I would share it for the weekly challenge.
Looking at some photos I took several weeks ago I found this one of one of my dahlias that had a visitor that I didn’t see when I took the photo! Thought I would share it with you. Enjoy!
great color on the flower and detail on both!
Another odd feller hanging out on our back deck. Interesting, too!
I have several flower photos that have what I call “usual” visitors – those insects that make flowers their frequent stops. Here are some of the photos! I presented them as a slideshow this time, which is unusual for me…
On a trip to Fort Gibson in the town of the same name in Oklahoma, I found a gorgeous field of crimson clover with some daisies and other flowers hiding in the masses. I also found lots of bees! Here are a couple of photos from the adventure. (I hope to get more posted this week and a post on the Fort itself.)
Mundane = ordinary or commonplace
So here are a few photos of things that are ordinary but looking at them in an un-ordinary way…
San Diego Marina
Sit With Me
Yellow Rose Visitor
Me Or The Bee?
How Sweet In Pink
Dangerous Bird Perch
Love – (according the MW dictionary) “a strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties.” So here are a few photos that show love in some manner.
This photo is of a colt and his mother.
This photo is of roses found on Memorial Day in the river in Roaring River, MO. It appeared that someone had thrown them in the river. The spider refused to budge from the roses. Perhaps a love scorned?? Or a love remembered??
I took these photos a couple of weeks ago but have not yet shared them. Our first daffodils of the season.

After looking at my pictures I found that I have a LOT with insects. That made me think that maybe I should have been an entomologist. Ok, well, not really. But perhaps I see a theme coming to FR&A…. Here are some of my early insect photos taken in Roaring River, MO.
On this first one I like the sparkle of the water reflected off to the right in the photo. The small, small flowers with the round shiny bug just have some appeal that I can’t quite name…
The second picture I just love for the red in it – the ladybug so bright and round and the other insect that looks like a black, white and red striped fly- and of course, again, the small white flowers against the beautiful greens. Also, this picture (or a part of it) appears on the cover of my Blurb book Nature’s HD (for sale on Blurb).
For all those just waiting patiently to find out which was the first picture I sold – here it is! (it’s also one of my Hubby’s favorites!)
Another was a pic I’m not sure I’ve shown you before:
All in the Details
I was innocently taking pictures of some Indian paintbrushes one spring day. Having found some ladybugs crawling along a stem I, of course, bent down to take closer pictures. When I downloaded the pics for a closer look I discovered the picture below. As my amazing husband noted, only I could take X-rated nature photos!!!
