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?
