EACH Sunday morning I trek over to fellow Taswegian Kim’s site FrogPondsRock to view her Sunday Selections and all those bloggers associated with the meme. The idea is to post photos that otherwise would stay buried on your laptop, never to be seen.

Last weekend Princess Ella and I took advantage of one of the final beautiful days left of summer and had a picnic outside. After ditching the toasted sandwich for strawberries, sultanas and a chocolate treat, we had a closer look at the lemon tree to see what we could discover. This is what we found… Bugs, Bees and Butterfl …ah, Moths.

After you’ve had a look, leave a comment, then head on over to the meme and look through some of the other Sunday Selections.

Next week I might share some of Ella’s photos from her Dora the Explorer camera. Or not!…

This is a bee that obliged to have its photo taken….

It allowed us to get closer…

And closer…

This is a ladybird that unfortunately flew away very quickly, thanks to a little person getting a little too vocal…

This is a moth that turned its head and smiled at us.

Cheeky!

    Great close-ups… very obliging bugs! I love seeing bugs in my garden too but never think to photograph them.

      I wouldn’t normally photography them either, Gaby. Funny how little people make you look at the world from a different point of view!! 🙂

    The smiling moth takes my fancy most.

    It looks like you’ve enjoyed a lovely morning on bug safari.

      Yes, we had a bit of a laugh at the moth photo! It was an absolutely glorious Tassie day. Must admit, it was probably the last decent day we had. Since, it’s been bitterly cold here! Brrrrr…..

  3. I am so pleased that you decided to join in, I smiled back at the Moth 🙂

    • Kel says:

    Gorgeous photos Kellie! I really love bees, as long as they’re minding their own business.

    Fabulous photos. I love close up shots of things! Sounds like a nice picnic too. This is such a lovely time of year – if only winter wasn’t lerking!!

    Lovely photos, Kellie. I’m always trying to get closeups of insects, but they are a bit camera shy around here. I’ve managed a few though. I love lemon blossom.

    • Kel says:

      Thanks River. I’m surprised they hung around, to be honest. Especially with a rather vocal three-year-old singing out “mum, mum, look, a bee!” 🙂
