Faust Park #2

Normally I post on Tuesdays, but for the next two or three weeks all sorts of things are keeping me busy and I will have very little time for WordPress and some of my other normal activites.  So, since I won’t be posting next Tuesday and probably not the one after that, you might want to exit this post now and come back to it next Tuesday.  At that time you could just go through half of it and finish it off the following Tuesday.

Or, you could just go ahead and read it all now and risk suffering withdrawal symptoms during the following two weeks – it’s your choice.

 

Some more photos from St. Louis County’s Faust Park.

 

Ladybugs, like all insects, have six legs.  Here it appears one has lost the use of its first four legs and another ladybug is helping it home.

 

Two shots of a carpenter bee on a purple coneflower.

 

 

Ladybug preening left front leg.

 

Seed pod; looks like it is made of leather.  I don’t know what that thorn like object is between the pod and the green stem.  Normally I’d think something like that would be for protection, but I don’t see how it could be given its position behind the pod.

 

Silver-spotted skipper.

 

Thank you for stopping by.

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

  1. Unfortunately the fate of the ladybugs will remain a mystery. My style of photography is more of a capture the moment and, when possible, process the file to evoke a certain feeling or emotion rather than tell a complete story.
    However; if you need some closure in this particular instance, I can tell you that after snapping the picture I stood up to check the result and accidently stepped on them. C’est la vie.
