Bonus: Of a Butterfly on an Agastache

The butterfly’s wings are really torn up – especially the left one. But the patterns and shapes and colors of this shot are great. And nature isn’t always about perfection. Sometimes it’s about doing the best you can with what you have. If I were a smarter man, I’d point out that there’s a lesson in there somewhere.

Bonus: Ladybug by Request

Been sitting on this one for a few days (not having found time to post it). But at the art festival last weekend, a woman asked if I had any prints of ladybugs. Didn’t have any on hand, but I did promise to post this shot (several others to be seen on this site by clicking on the “ladybug” tag). Fun one on the foliage of the California poppy.

Bonus: Another Damselfly

Was checking a bunch of lavender looking (with lots of hope) for bees. Wasn’t quite ready yet. But this pretty one showed up. Also saw a dragonfly today, but it sure had no interest in holding still for me. Still looking…

Oh, and I think I should mention: every day when I put the copyright (© on a picture, I pick a contrasting color from another part of the picture. Today’s purple (in the text) came from the damselfly’s eye. I never knew!
