Bugs and Blooms

28 Jun

It seems like you can’t photograph a flower without a bug on them, so I quit trying.  Here’s what’s blooming at Eden Hills right now.

    The bugs make the blossoms all the more interesting. (well at least that’s what I think.)

    love your blooms – and the cool little spidey, too.

      They are pretty if you can find them through the weeds.

    As we were leaving our church this morning, I noticed a different flower blooming. My daughter told me it was bee balm.They’re quite pretty. The chicory is blooming down in the valley. I always enjoy your flower pictures.

      Thanks. It’s a good thing to do macro shot for because I can hide all the weeds that way.

    Bugs and flowers just go together!

    • Teresa June 28, 2015 at 6:40 pm #

      They certainly seem to!

    All the same blooming here, but I’m not close enough to the alfalfa to get the pictures :-). Our yucca is going by now.

      Sadly, I still have a lot of alfalfa standing rather than baled. Wish it would quit raining for a little while.

    Beautiful collection of flowers. And especially love the first photo of the butterfly. Great detail of its design.

      Thank you. I have tons of those admiral butterflies in my hay fields.

    They are all beautiful shots. We have that odd spider here too. I do have a Macro Monday shot up today.

    • Teresa June 28, 2015 at 7:40 pm #

      Thanks. Maybe somebody will tell me what kind of spider it is.

      We have had a lot of butterflies this year.

    As someone who is not a fan of spiders-I prefer them outside, instead of inside 😉 -I LOVE that shot of the spider!!

    • Teresa June 29, 2015 at 12:27 pm #

      Well, this spider was outside. I do prefer they stay in the basement if they have to come into the house.

    • Teresa June 29, 2015 at 2:06 pm #

      Yeah. These are bugs I can handle, especially since they are outside.

      • Donkey Driver June 29, 2015 at 9:54 pm #

        I like them on your photos. I think they add interest.
