Emerald Green with Wings


(Please click on this photo to enlarge and see more details!)

Due to inclement weather (rain, rain, flood, rain), we have been stuck indoors for several days. What better time to go through the archives and find those pictures I had forgotten about!

This emerald green (bee? fly?) was gathering some late season pollen when I came across it near the end of October.

I was mesmerized by the iridescent green of the insect against the vivid yellow of the flower.

I am linking this up with Tina's PicStory's "Weekend Flowers",
James' "Weekend Reflections",
NixBlog's "Floral Friday Fotos",
and
NatureFootsteps' "NF Winged".

I hope everyone has a delightful weekend!

  11. That picture reminds me of the insects we used to see when we were kids...this glowing green--there were gold, hot pink and silvery colored insects.

    I LOVE this photo. It is absolutely, incredibly eye-filling.
