Insect Galore (Yesterday’s Yard Photography Finds)


Being that yesterday was such a gorgeous day, I headed out with my camera to explore and see what kind of finds were around the yard. I went visiting flower to flower seeing what insects I could capture.

Here are a few of them enjoying some of the many flowers and wildflowers around.

This large black bee was enjoying some yellow flowers that belong to a small tree that grows wild here, can’t remember the name of it, but it seems to bloom year round.

Here he is again trying to find nectar on these aloe vera flowers that were right below the tree.

A little skipper sits on top of this wild Lantana flower, it was so tiny that I almost missed it.

This wasp didn’t seem to mind that I was just 3 inches away, she just continued enjoying the cilantro flowers as if I wasn’t even there.

Honey bees, they are like my favorite and I don’t know why. Here are a couple of close-ups of two enjoying some wildflowers.

There were plenty more insects around that I didn’t capture, the day was filled with them going here and there. I’m expecting more in the next few weeks as the weeds start to grow and take over with their blooms, lots of butterflies too I hope.

Anyway, this will be my last post for today, got to get a few things done.

Till next time…
