Even so, I was quite pleased with what I found along the way. Many miniature friends. A grasshopper caught in quite a nice candid pose as he clings to a stalk of wild grass. A two for one when I took a shot of a brown skipper, a spittle bug was but a few grass blades away. An earwig trying to blend into the bud of a goatsbeard. And my absolute favorite - an ant farm.
Yes, I'm a geek. Whenever I find ants farming aphids, the immediate area knows about it as I start to scream like a little girl. Some girls had a fuss over the Beatles, I'll have a fuss over a beetle. Yeah, terrible pun, so I'll just end there before it gets worse!
