Another Late Summer Walk With My Macro Lens
It’s late Summer and here in Northeastern Pennsylvania that means mushroom season. Last Friday I decided to take a quick hike and search for edible wild mushrooms. Once again I struck out finding any mushrooms but was able to capture some more of the beauty of nature with my macro lens.
These stinging insects are feared by many but they all serve a purpose in nature. And viewed up close they have an intricate beauty.The insects pollinate the flowers as can be seen by the full pollen sacs on this bee.
and nightshade were growing along the trails as I continued my hike.
I didn’t find any of the species of wild mushrooms I eat but the uncovering the beauty of nature in the insect world was reward enough for me. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike. Macro lens hike September 5 2019.
“The botanist should make interest with the bees if he would know when the flowers open and when they close”
– Henry David Thoreau
