The sun was just beginning to set when I photographed this granddaddy longlegs spider sitting in our apple tree. It made him look so colorful and brilliant. He was hard to see because he blended in so well with the leaves and bark of the tree.
If you scroll down a few post, you will see my photo of a honey bee eating from a clover. This post features a similar photo of a bumble bee stopping to eat a portion of his breakfast at this clover. The morning dew, which was still on the grass when I shot this photo, added color and beauty to my bee portrait.
If you scroll down a few post, you will see my picture of a tiger stripped centipede. This photo features one that looks similar to a leopard. We found him crawling around on rocks in the middle of a hiking trial in the middle of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
I’ve never seen a centipede with color markings like this! Its color patterns look very similar to that on a tiger. I captured this photo near a waterfall during our trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway this May.
