Say Hello to My Little Friend

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:25pm
I have a habit that truly embarasses my kids. I absolutely love wildflowers. We'll be driving down the road and I'll notice wildflowers growing on the roadside. And I absolutley have to stop and pick a handful of them.


And now that I'm a photography nerd too, it adds a whole new level of embarassment for my kids. Not only do I pull the car over to pick the wildflowers. Now, I spend fifteen agonizing and humiliating minutes taking pictures of the wildflowers too.

My children's pain and suffering can be multiplied and taken to a whole new level if there happens to be an insect around. I think bugs are pretty cool. I enjoy capturing images of bugs with my camera.

It makes me feel like Marlin Perkins from Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. I loved watching him as a little girl in the 70's. How about you? Come on, I know you watched him too.

Dragonflies and grasshoppers fascinate me. I think the hovering flight of bumblebees is beautiful. And spiders are cool too. But, I never thought much of a wasp. Until today.

Say Hello to my little friend...


My little friend posed for me for a good five minutes. He never flew away. He never acted like he was going to sting me. He even told me that his right side was his good side.

I think he just wanted to be famous like Miss Dragon Fly.

So, do you think I'm a little off my rocker? Never mind. Don't answer that. Anyway, here is the fruits of my labor. Here is the reason for my weirdness.

Being considered a little off my rocker is a small price to pay for having this beautiful and carefree bouquet of wildflowers in my kitchen.
