Bugs on plants and one good fence…

I was looking around at the photos I’ve taken in the last couple of weeks and found that I have been taking a lot of shots of bugs.  There’s a bear and a bobcat roaming around our neighborhood, but I am only getting bugs.  Oh, well…guess I’m hanging around in the wrong places.  But since that’s what I’ve got, I will post a few bugs today. 
 





One problem with bugs is that they refuse to be fenced in.  Still I want to participate in Good Fences on Theresa’s Run*A*Round Ranch Report so I am also posting one good fence.  This fence is there to keep people from driving into Quaboag Pond in Brookfield, Massachusetts.  It seems to be working for that, but it would do nothing to keep the bugs out or in.

Your bugs hang out in awful purty places! You know, we also have a bobcat hanging around...seen it twice now....never saw a wild one before

The fourth shot of the Lily is stunning. Great 'bug'shots but that last photo has a wonderful view.

Great insect shots!! This is what I shoot a lot of in the summer because the birds are too difficult to spot in the thick trees. That last image is spectacular!

Cool critters. Love that last dragonfly shot and the Robert Frost quote is perfect for good fences!

Beautiful view beyond the fence! I love the shots of the bugs, too. Be careful of the bear and bobcat! I would love to see them--from a distance. :-)

I've often thought it would be handy to be a bug some days ...to get in or out of places I can't get...but, the day would come when somebody like me would squash me.... acckkdk! not good!!

A good time of year to take advantage of the interesting bugs out there - and if you happen across the bear and bobcat, well - guess you can call it the trifecta.

Nice close-ups.

Bugs are better than nothing! Love the sky in the fence shot...as well as the lines on it.
