Shots from My Garden

Two large milkweed bugs (and “large” is part of their name; not just an adjective I threw in).  As you might guess there is also such a thing as small milkweed bugs but the black pattern on their orange body looks more like an X and yes, they are a bit smaller.  I guess it’s no coincidence that I found these bugs on a milkweed leaf.

These two seem to have collided as they were backing out of their parking spaces.


Oops.  These next three shots of honeysuckle are not from my garden.  The bush is about six or seven feet from the edge of my garden in my neighbor’s yard.  This thing kind if looks like a Dr. Seuss  character spitting out a stream of water.




Not positive what this flower is but I think it is a zinnia.


One thing my garden does not lack is cosmoses.




Thank you for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.
