These three photos focus on a set of three pine cones. I took notice of the amazing patterns and interesting shapes as I zoomed in closer, new details emerge.
First Cicada exoskeleton found this summer! It is always an impressive sight to find.
You will find the bugs on their favorite plants.
Milkweed Beetles really live up to their name! They're all over the milkweed plant and so easy to find with their bright red color.
I also discovered a Goldenrod Leaf Beetle today, a little black and gold beetle.
In today's post you will see more awesome closeup insect photos, brand new colorful insects and my friend the Red Milkweed Beetle.
I am going to make these insect photos available for lineart coloring soon. Children and adults can have fun coloring the insects whatever color patterns they wish. It's especially relaxing to color patterns found in nature.
Pay close attention to the small things and you will notice magnificent beauty.Photography © 2019 - Galaxy s8 phone camera
It turns out this beetle is an invasive species here in North America. They quickly consume leaf matter and all that remains is the leaf vine structure like a leaf skeleton. They're very beautiful with shiny metallic green and copper wings. Especially unique are the 12 fur-like white tufts running along it's side.

Summer is back, and so are the wildflowers and bees doing their thing. I also got warned by a few Red Winged Blackbirds to stay away from their nesting tree! I shall respect your nesting space my aggressive territorial feathered friends. I understand you love your baby birds. But please don't peck my head!
