Garden Lover #15

A Hoverfly, showing off its spectacular eyes.

 

[I'll give this subject a rest for a little while now...I expect I could continue the series with a new garden bug every day for about a year, but am well aware not all my SC buddies are into garden bugs as much as me. Thank you all for your encouraging remarks.]

Are those three extra little yes, Ray? As far as I am concerned you could show bugs every day of the year, but I know you have a lot of other interesting stuff to show, too
Ray: I don't think they are eyes, Lisl, but do think they are sensors for something...perhaps in place of antennae. I'll return to bugs in a few weeks. Next week I expect I'll take us travelling.
I totally agree with Lisl, wanting to see the bugs AND everything else. So much, so little time.
Ray: SC is a bit like University for me, Ginnie, and I feel most of my buddies think similarly.

This is a winner again, love these 'flying objects' and I never grow tired of you showing these. However I agree with Lisl, you live in such an unique place with so many unique sites to visit and capture. Life is all about making choices wink
Ray: I think you are right about all this, Astrid. Next week I'll take you to Southern Laos for a short trip.
Personnellement tout me plait dans vos propositions de partage
Les insectes je ne sais pas vraiment les photographier donc j'apprecie de les voir chez lez autres ..
Mais toutes autres choses sera aussi bienvenues
Bonne journée Ray
Ray: Merci de votre intérêt, Claudine. En vérité, j'aime la plupart des choses dans la nature, et la plupart des choses à faire avec les gens. Hoverflies ont le plus beau des yeux.

Another joy to behold
Ray: A gorgeous critter, Chris!
The eyes have it Ray.
Ray: You seem so sure about this, Chad!  smile

Oh, the wonders of nature - and what for magnificent eyes! Oh, if the hoverfly knew how beautiful she/he is!
Ray: Hoverflies are wonderful and useful critters, Philine, and have the most beautiful of eyes.
My comments have not been going through but I hope to tell you that you could show insects forever as far as I am concerned.
A fine shot to finish this series Ray, I don't mind seeing Thai bugs, it's the slithering 'S' things I don't enjoy seeing!

I like its bloodshot eyes. I thought of you earlier; I've been trying to photograph bees on lavender. I have yet to look at the results but I'm expecting that they will be useless in comparison to yours.
it was a great series of garden bugs Ray... now you can stand up to take some pictures for a while...

i have enough sunsets and golden hours to post one every day as wellgrin
