Orange you glad to meet me?


This orange beauty visited me and Brian in the garden in Grass Valley. Lee, my mother in law (I’m lucky, I have two), has an amazing garden, and this little guy was a fan of her landscape. He would politely pose atop this finial for Brian, fly off for a moment, and then return for a couple more close-ups. He’s ready for America’s Next Top Insect Model.

The camera really loves that color he’s wearing, don’t you think?

About megstar73

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
