If You Look Real Close, Bugs Can Beautiful Too. Well I Think So Anyway.
Unlike the cold and dark Winter months here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where nature goes to sleep and there is not much life outdoors, the Spring and Summer months have something new to display every day.
The summer flowers are now in bloom, The thistle, queen anne’s lace, daisies and chicory. And the aromatic yarrow, pictured below. And they all attract a multitude of insects. It is truly amazing to find a patch of, what many consider weeds, and see the numerous species of insects that they attract.
You really don’t appreciate the remarkable of complexity of even the tiniest insect until you examine it up close. I truly could spend hours looking at these tiny but delicate and beautiful creatures, which many folks call pest, that share our world with us. They were here long before we were and surely where created for a purpose. And I am glad to be able to capture some of that beauty with the aide of my macro lens.
God in His wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.
