What's in My Yard

It never ceases to amaze me what a wealth of material my own yard holds. The above dandelion that's gone to seed was near our dog run. I love the way the two grass blades frame it.

Above is a jumping spider I found on my poppy buds. He got bored with staring me down and went about building his tripwire web. They can see very well, so it's quite difficult to photograph them at times as they will literally leap away.

Above is a honey bee. Not sure what kind of plant it is. I'm sure my neighbors consider it a weed, but I think they're pretty, so I pull them when they die in the fall.
