PFTA: Not Social Distancing

Every once in a while I get a hankering to hike in the deserts of Southern Utah.  This image comes from one such adventure in 2014.  I was taking macro shots of this yellow desert flower when I had a couple of unexpected visitors.  I guess they didn’t mind each other’s company, and I enjoyed the moments of (not so) close interaction.  These two are not social distancing, but I’m glad I kept my distance.

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Macro Photography

I’m participating in the online adventure travel magazine Wild Weekly Photo Challenge

for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Macro Photography!

It was very difficult to pick which photo to use, so I broke it down to three:

This is a close up of Stinging Nettle that is very pretty to look at, but not to touch.
This is the endangered Las Vegas Poppy that I found in the desert just east of Las Vegas, NV.
And last but not least:
One of my favorites, a Monarch Butterfly drinking the nectar from some flowers.
