In my Garden

While the children played "Watermelon" against the garage, I took some macro shots in the garden. Though I'm not trying, I somehow seem to be getting a lot of bee pictures. This one's rather pretty, if you ask me; look at the wonderful pattern on its abdomen. Isn't it cool, too, how clearly you can see through its wings? I also love the confetti-like feel of the center of the Stokes Aster and the myriad of colors in the center of the coneflower. It's hard to imagine that these will become the seeds the birds flock to in the fall. Right now, they almost seem dipped in marmalade.

You just keep getting better and better! Great for Wordless Wednesday, too. The bee picture is amazing and what kind of flower is the last one. You must have a fabulous garden.
