Sorry Folks, All I Got Is More Bees, Wasps And Bugs, And A Couple Of Butterflies.
It was a beautiful early Summer day here in Northeastern Pa. yesterday. Cooler, less humid Canadian air filtered in on a northerly breeze. There was plenty of sunshine but those puffy cumulus clouds of Summer floated in the deep blues skies.
I was able to get out for a hike but decided to take my macro lens with me again. I am fascinated by the beauty of the insects that I have always known but haven’t seen up close. And found that there are many different species of wasps, bees and bugs that I never knew lived in my area and even in my own back yard.
The thistle that now is in bloom everywhere along the paths and trails in the woods, is a gathering place for insects and butterflies of all types. And the daisy, comfrey, mullein, and many other flowers also attract a variety of these little critters.
I still haven’t mastered the focus on the macro but did get a few interesting photographs of these tiny, and often misunderstood, inhabitants, of our world. Many, like the bee, are essential to our survival, since they pollinate our fruit, grain and vegetable crops.
It was a great day to be outdoors under those beautiful clouds and plentiful sunshine and I am sorry i didn’t get some photos of the scenery.
Here is a link to some more photos I took of the insects n my hike yesterday. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/macro-railroad-tracks-and-yard-june-24-2015
