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…
