Flower of the Day – Sweet William

***

These are small flowers that are pink in the middle and white frilly petals on the edges.

From an earlier posting of this photo I got a comment that asked if I noticed the insect hiding behind the center flower. I had not noticed this, so enlarged the photo, and there it was! 🙂

Thanks, Iwbut, for calling my attention to this!

Ouch!

What is happening to me?

I was minding my own business, safe and snug in my own skin, and then …

Is it supposed to hurt so much?

My kinsmen told me that this would happen one day, but never mentioned the pain.

Shhh – did you hear that? That ripping sound? Oh, what is the reason for this strange tear on my back?

I can’t see what is happening to me, but I can feel it. I feel like screaming, and I will …

Now, I’m stuck; I can’t move; oh someone help me.

Wait a minute. Now my skin has gone brittle, brittle …

Ummph

I managed to wriggle a leg out of my encasement, now another and another.

Whew, let me rest a few minutes. I feel so tired, and a bit damp.

The sun feels good on my new wings. What? I have new wings? They are kind of pretty.

I will wave my wings around and sing. I feel like singing loud.

The pain is gone and I feel renewed.

So that’s what my kinsmen meant when they called it metamorphosis!

Flower of the Day – Yellow with a Beetle

Standard

Flower of the Day – Yellow with a Beetle

***

I saw this yellow flower at my aunt’s house the other day. It’s probably a flowering weed, but still pretty. When looking closer, I saw this little bug or beetle on the stem. It is black with four orange spots on it’s back. I doesn’t look exactly like a ladybug, but similar. It’s not rounded, though. I tried to find what kind of bug it was, but got several suggestion pictures, none were exactly like I was looking for. Some were called Sexton Beetles, Cylinder Leaf Beetle, and Sap Beetles, and Harlequin Beetles. I still don’t know what it is.

To see it closer, you can click the photo.

Thanks for hosting this fun challenge, Jennifer! 🙂

Today’s color we are to feature, is Asparagus. I didn’t know a package of Crayons had one called this. It is green, like the vegetable. I like eating asparagus, sometimes, but to be funny we just call them asparagooses. 🙂

Anyway, here’s a picture of a praying mantis insect. It landed on my daughter this past summer, when we were at a local amusement park. I had to take it’s picture, of course …haha…he/or she was very photogenic, and posed for me awhile.

Do you think Mr. Mantis is smiling for the camera?
