I Heart Macro 10-2-11

Funky Mushroom growing on the side of a tree.

Siamese Milkweeds?

Yellow Paper Wasp
Monarch Butterfly
Hi Everyone! It's time for another installment of I Heart Macro. Be sure to click each picture for a bigger view. My Sister-in-law Kim (be sure to check out her photos too - she got some beauties) and I made another trip to my favorite spot for a nature walk. The weather was cooler than it has been for awhile, and we had a wonderful time walking around snapping pics and talking for a few hours. Every time I go to this spot, I see new things. New animals, new plants new bugs. I find myself almost giddy with excitement driving home to see what I shot on the computer. I wasn't disappointed! Hope you have a wonderful week. We are supposed to have beautiful sunny weather in the low 70's several days this week, so you can probably guess where I will be as much as possible.
