This weeks challenge has been set from across the pond by Lanny and is “What’s Buggin’ You?
She said she excepts great things from the photographers amongst us, does that mean me?
Well Lanny If I decided to list everything that was buggin’ me in the world this would be a very long and boring blog post today and probably wouldn’t contain very many photographs. Instead I’ve stolen just a bit of your theme and gone with the buggin’ bit. Garden bugs to be exact.
This afternoon I went out with macro lens attached and overturned a few logs and looked on a few leaves to see what I could find.
Under the first log I found this brightly coloured individual…
He was scurrying around obviously anxious to be back hidden so I was happy to oblige.
Looking further around the garden there sunbathing on a leaf was a tiny little fly…
No sooner had I taken this photo had he gone.
The next photo is one of his bigger brothers the Blue Bottle Fly…
If you click on the image and enlarge it you can see that its body is so shiny that I've been captured in a self portrait.
Lots of people’s first impression of bugs are eehhhhhh! but there are many who are very helpful for the gardener and farmer and when I was turned over a bit of soil to look for bugs to take photos of I found one of the gardeners best friends. The worm…
Maybe not truly a bug but certainly bug like.
So bugs are good, yes?
My header therefore is full of bugs I hope you like them and don’t go eeeehhhhh!!!
