As we were getting ready for Amanda’s Baby Shower on Saturday, I snuck out for a while to photograph the gardens.
My idea was to capture some bugs on the flowers—we have cone flowers and butterfly bushes that attract a lot of visitors.
The bugs were not so interested. I got some nice flower photos, and cute pictures of granddaughter Lizzie playing in water on the back deck, but few bugs.
Well, it was a cool morning. Later that same day, after the shower, there was more bug life to see. Got some new monarch photos, a moth on the neighbor’s wall and some bees.
Cool. Good pictures come to those who wait. I’ve photographed monarchs before, but had the longer lens on the Nikon, and I think I got some better pictures. Besides those flickr images, here are more on Facebook.
