Macro – Moments Week 15

Last of the Dragonflies

While hiking Sunday, I came onto this Band-Winged Meadowhawk. A warm fall has extended its season. Some dragonflies will warm up and survive into November , even December. It chose this Dogwood as its post – a most convenient camo spot.

A Handsome Devil

I’ve not done a weekly photo challenge in a while and thought these pics I took at a trails end might fit nicely with The Weekly Macro Photo Challenge: Week 14. Left to itself this wasp is quite docile and useful. Aggravate it and you’ll pay.

Multi – Flora Rose

Multi-Flora Rose was introduced as an experimental natural fence row. An experiment gone out-of-control, this lovely flowering shrub is now the invasive curse to every forest restoration project, farmers pasture, and overgrown fence-row.

Dogwood Days Full Bloom

A Dogwood tree will never grow on your lot I was told when we built our new  home a couple of years ago. So, being a little bit contrarian, I rescued a Cherokee Red Dogwood from Lowes Garden Center for $7 after gardening season. You do not plant Dogwoods in the fall and expect them to survive the winter, especially in a high wind zone. But I did. It was pretty scruffy looking last year but this year the nurturing is blooming dividends.

From earlier this spring.
