I have a few bug photos to show you that I took at the rose garden the other day!
Mostly I love this one (and the first) for the flower. It was very photogenic. But these bugs were really cute and I have never seen them before. There were so many that it seems odd that I wouldn't have run into them on other visits, but I don't remember them. They are kind of like yellowish ladybugs!
I couldn't stop taking pictures of them. :D I narrowed the selection down a lot, though.
I read that it's best to take bug macros early in the day when it's cool and they are not as active, and that was definitely true this day. This bee sat fairly still for me to get lots of photos, but yes he was alive!
