Macro Experiment: Feverfew Flowers with Beetles

Macro Experiment: Feverfew Flowers with Beetles

Thurs 06.02.16 – My Mom’s garden is quite profuse with flowers of every sort right now. Near the steps to go up to the front porch, she has a spot of the herb feverfew growing. The last few times I have walked by, I have seen these tiny little bugs on the small white and yellow flowers. Today I decided to bring out my wide manual macro lens and the macro extension tubes to see if I could capture what the little beetles really looked like.

The little black and white lady beetles are lovely.

Tues 05.24.16 – Driving westbound on Hwy 58 from Barstow to Kramer Junction, I got stuck behind this rather delightful old railway car being inexplicably transported by truck rather than rail. The sun was setting in front of us, the truck was driving less than 51 mph, so I took a photo.
