30-JUL-2006 noearlybird

by noearlybird

Heat and rain again today. I wandered aimlessly around my yard when the rain stopped trying to find something to take a picture of. Chased a butterfly that wouldn't stop and sit on anything still for my camera. I found myself coming back to this cone, that I have taken a bunch of pictures of. Well not this one, it's fairly new. And comfy to the bug.

Incredibly striking - is there a beetle in there too?

I personally like this the way it is with the green leaf background. But a macro would be nice, too. Just a different POV of the same subject.

Kathie it's such pretty colors. Can you move in closer and try to isolate the bloom. It could be very striking as a macro with all the shading and texture and color in it!

Very pretty color contrast.
