Day 192 (10 July 2012) Flowers and Bugs

One thing I like about doing yard work s that I get more than a drive-by look at my yard, and the flowers, plants, and nature that it contains.  As I was mowing after dinner tonight, I spotted some flowering plants that I had not seen/noticed before.  And while shooting one set, I noticed the beetle in the last photo.

Shooting at home is a great way to relax after a day at work, IMO.  Especially since I don’t have to drive anywhere, and I have plenty to shoot with my macro lens 🙂
