Lately I’ve not been able to come up with witty, clever, or enticing titles for my posts. This one reads more like a Table of Contents than anything else. To fix this I pulled out my handbook, 101 Things You Have to Know If You Are Going to Write for The Internet, to get some inspiration, or even steal ideas )which was one of the suggestions in the handbook).
Here are some alternate title possibilities:
You May Not Believe What These Carpenter Bees Are Doing
Growing Cosmos Buds, Have the Laws in Your State Changed?
Zinnias Are Going to Be a Thing This Year And It’s Not Too late for You To Get In On It
There Are Cosmos Buds Up the Street From Me and I’m Loving It
Skippers, We Love Them and Why You Should Too
Truth is I’m not going to go with anything like these titles. In fact whenever I see a title similar to any of the above I get a little mad. Usually I run across these types of titles when I’m reading what is supposed to be news or I’m doing a search looking for facts about something. The reason I get a little mad is because I feel like I’m being insulted buy whatever site hosts this type of click bait crap (also known as CBC). Like they think I am going to be so stupid that I just cant wait to click on the link and see “why I should read X before it gets deleted”. Facebook used to be pretty bad with inserting these types of things into your timeline but I’ve noticed that they are much much better with with what they insert now.
Well, so much for that. Let’s get back to what I described in my “table of contents” title.
The four cosmos buds.
The skipper on a Zinnia.
And the three shots of a carpenter bee on a zinnia. Notice how the underside of his body is separated a little from the flower.
Here it looks as though he is laying into the flower a bit.
Here it looks as though he’s flattened out on the flower and hanging on for dear life.
Thank you for stopping by.
