I'm working on macros again. I've been so busy...stressed and trying to breathe.
I'm taking time to smell the echinacea! So is everyone else. I spotted a caterpillar, on top of one, the same orangey colour, but the time I'd fetched the camera: 'Gone Daycare!'(family joke from when the kids WERE in daycare. When they lost something, I would surmise they'd left it at daycare.)
Then, there is Common Mullein, it looks like a strange corn plant, but taking a quickie walk across the highway, I was able to snap quite a few critters adoring this plant.
Sort of a hodge-podge, as this is where my brain is at!
There is one bee-like thing, I haven't researched it yet, I know I've seen it in my books. It was on some poisonous Wild parsnip.
I've been scanning the tall flowers, as I know this spider hangs out on them. I just happened to have my videocam and, while I should have used the tripod, I can give you an idea of this wicked little spider!

Wicked little spider, who change colour! It won out over the bumblebee. 'My flower!' I assume it eats smaller bees!
