Camera Critters - Post 54



I knew this small green critter had recently been walking on the pollen-covered anthers of my day lily because it left little yellow footprints behind on the petal. There seems to be a bit of pollen clinging to its legs, also.

This is wonderful and how delightful that it left it little footprints. Great picture! Isn't it so amazing that there are so many little, fascinating creatures living in our gardens in the summer. Nice post.

Great critter. I don't know how I missed you the other day. Crossed eyes for to much monitor viewing I guess. (grin).

Anyway, nice photograph of the critter and the flower. Perfect exposure. Well done.

Thanks for the visit,
Troy and Martha

I've never heard of Camera Critters. This is pretty cool, Pat. I love that you can see his little pollen-colored footsteps on the leaf!

healingmagichands said...

I like your picture, especially the footprints! What a great eye for detail you have. Participating in camera critters has made me more aware of the small things that are out there in my garden, looks like it has worked that way on you too.

Thank you for dropping my my blog. I'll be doing a post on my mom's birthday on the 14th....if I can get all my pictures pulled together. Lots of albums to go through before then! I lost her a little over 4 years ago.

Such a fabulous photo!!! The flower is absolutely beautiful! The bug? Well, it is a cute little thing with tiny little footprints, too! LOL Nature at its best...don't you just love to snap shots like this one? Lovely, lovely photo!!! Check out Abe Lincoln's blogs on my blogroll list. He does a lot of flower and bug shots, too. His My Birds Blog is really good, too!

Oh - that made me smile! I keep thinking of that little guy saying "I did not touch the plant - I just landed here a bit to rest" all the while his tracks revealing the truth! What a great shot.
