more pics - pollinator garden near the SFG

Post  landarch on 6/27/2013, 9:57 pm

Here are some pics of my pollinator garden near my SFG...not seeing hardly any butterflies and bees at all this year...maybe two non-bumble bees in the last two weeks or so.  Seeing plenty of lacewings, ladybugs, and parasitic wasps.

purple coneflower (I noticed the little spider hiding after I downloaded the pics from the camera)



Blanketflower



Liatris (gayfeather) with tickseed coreopsis in background



Butterfly Milkweed (with ladybug)

I use a simple Sony Cybershot with some special features...I think the setting I like the most is called "Mini"...it makes your shots look like they're a part of a miniature model with a really narrow area of focus...then I just crop for interest.

Nice shots!  I need a new camera.  I have a hard time getting closeups with my camera.  Never used to.  It's about 8 years old now.

Those are stunning shots Landarch.  You have both the skills for photography and for gardening.

I can't get over how vibrant the colors are.  Your pollinators will have a ball in you flower beds!
