Sometimes, it's the little things that capture my attention. A flash of movement or an unusual shape will catch my eye and I try for a closer look.
This American Pelecinid Wasp appears fierce, but that nasty looking stinger is used primarily to insert eggs into unsuspecting grubs, thereby helping to control beetle populations.
This Bronze Copper butterfly is pretty unassuming and well camouflagd.
Well, at least it is until it opens its wings and displays its brilliant colors.
It's pretty hard to miss at that point, even though it's small.
I feel fortunate to be able to explore the world with Baloo every day!
