This Has Been Bugging Me

You take a beautiful capture of a great looking flower and what shows up in the middle but a fly. This is not even a pretty fly. Can you be bugged any worse then this? These little buggers have just been showing up in the shots. At least this one adds some contrasting colors with its green head.
The last little bugger was harder to see. My neighbor is growing some beautiful Lilies that he called Gladiolas. I think I know a Lily when I see it. Click on the photo and look at the right bottom petal. You will see the pincher's of an Ear Wig. I told you these bugs were bugging me.
Here is one without the bug. I think it is a beautiful red spotted lily.
There was another dragonfly around the garden the other day. I did want to catch this one. It had the blackest color and that yellow stripe. The wings even had a special black stripe at the front wing tip. I was cutting the grass and it waited patiently until I was done. I had to work hard for this close-up but it was worth it. It kept saying I was too close and flying away. I did get this capture, check out this beauty.
That's the end of what's been bugging me.

LOL - that's what insects do!
Shush it away and shoot again!
Nature (fortunately) doesn't play to our rules - so relax and enjoy - as you did with the beautiful Widow Dragonfly!
Cheers, Klaus

I have the same problem! I guess if we're gonna get nature, we have to get it all.

Most of my flower pics have flies or some kind of insect in them. Can't get away from it.

If it's not a fly, it's some kid running into the viewfinder just about the time you are ready to get a great photo. Pappy

Leora said...

That's some lovely bugs you have. Oh, and the flowers are pretty, too.

Into every little photo a bug must appear to sing a little song:

Fishing Guy,
Fishing Guy,
Look at me
I'm alive.

Don't fret.
I'll be your pet.
Butterfy net.
No, not yet.

Fishing Guy,
Fishing Guy,
Look at me
I'm alive.

Nice shots Fishing guy. Do you know how many species of dragon fly live in your state ?

TSannie said...

That is most definitely NOT a gladiolas. Lily, yes, gladiolas no.

Your photos are wonderful, bugs and all.
