Wildflowers Get Bugged Too

It’s only 3 months till I can go to this spot again. Covered in wild Lupine, these remote hillsides are well worth my drive and time to visit every late spring. There is of course a mix of other wildflowers. Such places tend to be remote and further aways than closer as a rule. Early June is when this action “Springs” to life in it’s showy display to attract pollinators. It is mid-May in this country before the “last frost” threatens our plantings. We had lilacs blooming on the 4th of July last year.

The differences in relative scale of the tiny inhabitants of this image is just amazing to me. On the furthest right flower stalk, near the bottom, are two intrepid climbers. Relative to the plant they are scaling, have their work cut out for them. I’ve seen 6 foot tall humans climbing the Devil’ Tower National Monument 50 miles southeast of here. The relative size difference is essentially the same. We humans tend to live in a 1 level horizontal world. (split level houses aside) Gravity matters to us.

Just to remind you all, there are thousands of little areas of zen happening at all times all around us. We just have to tune in and “see” what is happening instead of being the generalists we are. Generalists look at a scene to get an overview. I’m trying really hard to train myself to see the world from the viewpoint of the smallest among us.

Feeding Frenzy

Here an Insect feeding frenzy around an apple fallen from it’s tree. Wasps and flies were swarming it. It was gone in a few hours. Not much goes to waste up here. Everything has something that eats it lol.

I get the Macro lens right around 12 inches away to get this kind of close up. I can get MUCH closer and zoom up on pretty face but the group was a busy place.

OK…..Dragonfly Wing Detail :

This is NUMBER ONE post through Bliss Photographics Gallery. There is group of creatures on this Dinosaur Ranch older than the owner AND the Dinosaurs. The Dragonflies have been around since the Coals Swamps of Pennsylvania back in those Carboniferous days. I followed this guy around like garden snail for about 10 minutes… That is FOREVER in my world..

I will be “trying” to post this way from now on. To you It may not seem different but I’m actually posting one photos within the website software and NOT in the standard FB window. I’m not just posting with that one click into FB but ALSO into multiple other social media site like twitter, flicker, instagram, Reddit, Blogger etc. as well as multiple FB forums all with one click (that takes 10 minutes to set up). Normally that would take me ALL day.
