Photo Experimenting

I've been having fun taking pictures today, and here are a few of my favorites. Are you thinking, "she's not going to bore us with her pictures is she?" Would I do that to you? Why yes I would!
First I saw these two beetles on the cone flowers. I never really knew how beautiful they are.

I saw this moth on the glass last night, and had to take a picture. I never realized they have a "fringe" on the bottom of their wings until I looked at this. And how mirror imaged both wings are.
I love this picture of the lily, how the sun reflected on it. And so detailed!
This one I'm not overjoyed with, though I do like the new growth coming on.
So that's what I've done so far today, now off to finish Kim's needlebook! Enjoy your day ladies, hope it's as beautiful where you are as it is here.
