Not Another Frog …

First shot available and taken, including dark ordure. Sometimes life just ain’t pretty, or easy.

It quickly became apparent this horse fly was for posing, even positioning, gently.

Angles available without too much movement to disturb. A much settled fly.

There happened to be the red nasturtium for background. Nice contrast …

Can’t see what I’ve got til I get it back to the computer. They don’t usually stay for seconds.

In for the detail of the business end of things, what bites, draws blood.

With the warming weather comes a burgeoning of forms from the nearby woods to the long garden.

One in recent days is the horse fly. Usually too busy a fly for me to get any shots of at all.

Then, during one of my frequent visits to the garden, I saw this female at rest.

And went to work … what we do.
