About Today’s Photo:
I came across this black-eyed Susan near my observatory. It seemed to be hosting a particularly buys collection of critters as I counted at least 5 of them hanging out. Most peculiar were the two inch worms that were braketing the flower’s center. Both were initially in the same position as the one on the right in the photo, and they occasionally bobbed towards the center over the time I watched. I’m not entirely sure what was going on there. Meantime, the spider scurried off, two beetles climbed about, and a fly came to visit. Busy morning indeed…
