  1. Our beautiful sage blooms are dying down these days. The bugs and I have really enjoyed them this year….and the bees really like them. Your capture is lovely. It is like it could have been taken right at my front porch. Genie

    1. Thanks, Genie. It is a common garden plant, and an everyday honeybee. It was one of those tiny beautiful things that are so easy to miss unless you’re into the macro world!

  2. You really take some awesome photographs. I’m always in awe with folks that have this skill. Excellent.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Princess Gail. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sandee! But if you want to see some really awesome photos, check out Kala’s site. Click on her name below this comment.

    1. Thanks, Kim!
      The blue sage color is similar to lavender, but the flower and the leaf are actually quite different.
      Loved your yellow Asian Lilies! 🙂

  3. That’s amazing! Every time I try to take a picture of something small it turns out fuzzy. Those are beautiful pictures. Such a tiny little guy… what kind?

    1. Me too! That’s why I have to take about twenty photos to get one good one!

      The little “inchworm” is really a moth caterpillar. There are about 1500 types of geometer moth caterpillars, so I’ll probably never know which one it is. I’m trying to see if I can find it again, and I’ll look for moths in the area. If I figure it out I’ll let you know.

    1. Inchworms are really caterpillars that will become moths. But do you know what? I was taking pictures of the bees on the blue sage. I didn’t see the inchworm until I was looking at the pictures on the computer! I went back out and got the picture of me pointing after that. Very easy to miss!

  4. I’m with Comedy Plus… what a talent you have, not just for taking photos, but the ability to spot what is wonderful. Thank you! : )
