Close Ups

I sometimes photograph things I didn't see,
such as this aphid in the side of this fiddleneck flower stalk.
Hard to see unless it is enlarged quite a bit.

Or this part of a Canyon Ragweed
Perhaps easier to recognize when this seed pod is ripe.
Canyon Ragweed (aka - Big Bursage) the burr carries the seeds.

I didn't have time to get my zoom lens out & on when this Black-Chinned Hummer was feeding on the nectar of this Chuparosa.
This (as are the others) is a tight crop of the original photo.
