I don’t really know my way around insect identification since plants were more of a fascination to me growing up. But the wonder of creation has always been my fascination and once you embrace a camera, wonder expands.
I captured this fly, or is it a bee, or maybe a wasp, on Rattlesnake Master at the end of July. Its full of wonder. The prairie in full bloom is a array of wonder. I’m inclined to think its a fly. Eventually I’ll sort it all out, but until then I can behold it’s wonder.

Up close it looks like maybe it comes from an Arizona desert rather from the edge of an Ohio farm field.
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life.“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
The wild garden edges transitions into to its summer display. Mostly, my hikes have me taking photos in holes of the forest canopy, woodland edges and prairie islands. Each season established its own beauty and its own display of light. I’ve found that dappled sunshine and deep shadows will make photos of interest. Enjoy springs end and summers beginning.
