This is a spotted cucumber beetle, y’all… I learned something new! XD
And this picture below is just to show the size of the flower…
And my blue-eyed boy was kinda shocked to discover that he has some green in his eyes too. 😉
He just loves this next one because you can see the freckles that he didn’t realize he had on his eyebrow. haha! XD
I really thought I had already shared this photo here, but when I went looking for it, I couldn’t find it! So I’m sharing it now. 😛
It was by photographing my own eyes that I discovered the persistent pupillary membrane in my left eye. I don’t recall my eye doctor ever saying anything about it, though he probably mentioned it to my mom when I was little. And if it’s not an issue, why bring it up again, right? But it worried me when I saw it while looking through the photos I’d taken. So… like most anyone would do, I did a Google search for “string across pupil” –or something like that. 😛
After reading some about it, I decided, like I said earlier, that it wasn’t an issue. I still haven’t mentioned it to my eye doctor, though I may bring it up sometime just to see what he has to say about it.
Anyway, after noticing this membrane, I started trying to get a better photo of it. While this isn’t an amazing photo or anything, it’s still pretty detailed and you can see the membrane quite clearly– and that’s why I like it. 😉
This is my favorite sunflower picture from the other day– thought I’d give it a post of its own. 😉
I suppose this bug doesn’t look that small, but the flower it’s on is a little one and this bug is really quite tiny. These pictures aren’t all that great, but as I was on my out to leave for work, I just happened to notice these flowers starting to bloom and as I squatted down to look at them… I noticed what looked like small seeds or something. Then one of them started crawling and I realized that they were bugs! So I whipped my ever-present camera out of my purse and snapped a few quick shots before I had to leave.
After some searching and some help from a fellow Okie photographer over on Flickr… I figured out that this is called an Ambush Bug. 😉
