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 ladybug inside the parking meter a while back. Thought I would share it for the weekly challenge.
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…
While roaming around Honor Heights Park yesterday I came upon this daisy occupied by a ladybug. When I took a look at the photo on my computer I fell in love with the light of the daisy against the shadow of the ladybug.
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).
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!!!

Weeds seem to be God’s way of decorating the grass we don’t have time to mow.
