It Has Been a While…

2020 was not a good year for me.  The pandemic happened.  It also brought a string of things that prevented me from doing what I love.  A computer crash resulted in the loss of about a year’s worth of photos.  A couple of pinched nerves made it difficult to walk until I had back surgery to correct the problem.  So I took a break from this blog.

Today I took some bug and flower photos for the first time in a while.  I am not in the shape I want to be in but I should get there before too long.  It is too cold for butterflies today, but I have seen some earlier this week.  Dandelions and violets are blooming in the back yard though so I took the opportunity to photograph what I could find.

Violets are under appreciated.

Not sure what type of fly this is, but there were a few on the dandelions.

This seems to be a nymph of some kind of planthopper.

The bleeding hearts are just beginning to bloom.

It felt good to get a few photos in today. It was sort of like catching up to an old friend I have not seen in a while…

  1. I agree about violets. I love to see them blooming in the spring among the grass. They are quite beautiful, and I occasionally collect one of an unusual color.
