Early insect visitor to forsythia
DP110-2016 Posted Wednesday, April 20
I confess, I didn't notice the ladybug when I was taking the shot. I had set the focus point on the large blossom on the left side of the shot, so the bug (beetle) isn't in very sharp focus. Oh, well.
The forsythia have been blooming for more than a week, and the ornamental pear trees have begun to bloom.
This is a rare (for me) same-day post to the Dailies. It was a photo snatched on my way home from the store. The shrubs were near enough to the curb that I could get several close shots without trespassing.
