Great photos.

I love the sun light shining through the monarch's wings.

That spider was a lil cutie. I was really happy finding him. I stuck my hand in to pull off the rotten tomatoes so I could get to the good ones before they started rotting and I caught movement and there he was staring straight at me. suunto identified it as a Bold Jumping Spider (Phidippus audax) here, Show off your bug photos here.

Asclepias> Nice.... very nice blue grama grass. Simple elegance I'd call that photo. How'd you get that black background so the grass shoots out at me?

Two excellent shots, Asclepias. Very tough to compete with.

Thank you, hava. I happened to look out at the butterfly garden one morning this week (on my way to work!) and saw the moth working over the Salvia. Knew I was going to be late, but.... gotta enjoy the beauty of life when we can, right?

dapjwy... thank you.

You are most welcome. As much as I like the hummingbird moth photo, there is something really special about the black and gold.

The Locust Borers visited the backyard goldenrod. Kinda creepy shooting them after dark. They are mean looking but calm. The other shots are from a local prairie.
