Close ups of a Different World

Love this picture, the close up with the back ground faded flowers.
This little beetle, floating on a leaf. I didn't see the other little bugs there.

Looks like corral doesn't it? It's growing on the side of our pine tree. In the first picture, you can see the spider web strung across it.

Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? It looks like a miniature of my Angel Trumpets, it's growing on a mound of dirt my husband got.


This baby cone flower looks like it's suspended in mid air!
When I looked at this picture, I was surprised to see this ant! Gives an idea of how tiny the flower is.

Your photo's are fantastic Laurie. And yes you fooled me. I thought it was coral.

Laurie, the stuff on your tree is Lichens, also the pretty beetle is a Japanese Beetle...garden pest.

Hi, Laurie, your pictures are remarkable. You sure can take detailed shots with that camera. I love these, especially the stuff on the tree and the one with the ant. That white flower - if it's about an inch or less across it's probably bind weed - DO NOT PLANT IT! It will choke out your other flowers. Blessings, Diane

Your photography is outstanding and I love the pictures of the trees how cool. It's good to have a sister that is knowleable :) Just like your sewing and cakes you seem to master art very well.

It's so much fun to just hear the excitement in your words about the photos you are taking! Fun times!

wonderful shots : )

Great photos! The flower you were wondering about is what we would call a morning glory. It's nasty and will grow up and around anything! I'm pretty sure the farmers in Iowa hate it as much as I do. I fight it all the time!
