There was rain in our area here in Northeastern Pennsylvania so I didn’t venture far from home. Took a short hike out the railroad tracks after work with my macro in a light rain and learned insects, bees and butterflies aren’t out in the rain. Didn’t see a one.
The rain stopped and had some clearing so I walked to a patch of thistle growing near my front yard and was amazed at the variety of wasp, bees and bugs that I found.
I found wasps with various colored wings, eyes and bodies, different species of bees and some bugs I never saw before.
The macro, and it’s requirement I have to look at things up close, has opened a whole new world for me, and I love exploring it. Just a quick one today, got to get to work,.Have a good day folks.
Here is the link to some more photographs from my visit to the thistle patch yesterday. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/bugs-and-bees-like-thistle-june-23-2015
