A busy bee working at the gathering of pollen along the Cowles Bog Trail – Indiana Dunes National Park.
Tiny and Spry
Paused from fluttering about, two tiny and spry unidentified insects. Does anyone know what these are? Fruit flies, maybe? Fandango’s One Word Challenge – Spry
Over the Edge
Do you see it? A tiny ant, walking along the fringe of a petal with one leg over the edge. It obviously has a lot better balance than I do. Gravity usually overtakes me whenever I am on the verge of tottering.

The Bee and the Coneflower Macro Monday
The Gatherer Wordless Wednesday
December has gotten here with a brisk wind and low temps and I found myself thinking back to the warmth of spring. As I scrolled through older pics I came across this bee, frozen in time through photography and entangled within a flower blossom at Chicago’s Garfield Conservatory .
Pause From Fluttering
Macro Monday Swift and snappy insects, taking a pause from fluttering from place to place.
That’s Close Enough!
Macro Monday Stop! That’s close enough with that camera, missy. I came across this colorful bee, buzzing from flower to flower in the garden at Chellberg Farm – Indiana Dunes National Park. After a few clicks, I decided it was time to walk away when it seemed to glare right at me. Cee’s Fun Foto…
Are You Looking at Me?
Spotted this bee as I was filling my bird feeder today. It sure seemed to be thinking, “Are you looking at me?” Yes, of course I was.
As Light As a Petal
Macro Monday Take a closer look as you wander through the garden. You just might see an insect as light as a petal, fluttering about from flower to flower.
Then It Was Gone
Bees were buzzing at Ogden Gardens. This one stopped long enough for me to click and then, it was gone!
