A lavender beetle that escaped being squashed by falling into a tiny hole in the wall. I photographed it instead and think I am reflected in its stripey back. They are iridescent purple and green-really very pretty but very destructive. When looking at this picture I noticed the teeny lichen circles and the other small things growing on this particular section of wall.
 These eggs are so perfectly mathematically arranged. Just beautiful.

 Chicks at school-very curious and nervous. There are two stripey ones, two very pale ones and two darker yellow.
 An iris I noticed at work the other day-pushing up through the tarmac of the carpark.
They were there first.

Hey Sarah!

Love the beetle-photo, so iridescent and I do see the shadow in there.

Hope you are well,

You are wise to take time to look at things in detail and appreciate even the small stuff. That stripy bug is very handsome even if it is an enemy to your garden.

Nice macro photos.

Love the bug shot, and he is lucky that you found him, the eggs on the leaf, interesting to see what they become. Butterflys perhaps.?

Beautiful symmetry in those eggs. I wonder what they will become? I like the guts of that Iris, asserting its right to be there!
