I am always inspired by nature and the beauty around us. We recently moved into an apartment (while waiting to build) and I have been missing many of the birds that I used to see in our backyard. But I have had to opportunity to see lots of insects and a bird or two in the surrounding fields. Here are a few examples of insects that I haven’t taken photos of previously.
My husband said that he always called these insects June bugs.
This little butterfly is no larger than 1.5 inches.
I was intrigued by this moth and looked up the ID. It’s called an Imperial moth and it’s unusual to see because the birds usually get to the caterpillars before they have a chance to become adults.
I am learning that even though we don’t have our own yard right now, there is beauty and inspiration all around. If you would like to join these challenges – you can find the info here – https://pilotfishblog.com/2021/08/07/lens-artists-photo-challenge-160-your-inspiration/
