Macro Monday - Insect on a Daisy

The coloring of this beautiful little insect was incredible.  He did not stay long enough for me to get any really good shots - but I am happy he stopped by!


For more great macros, be sure to visit Lisa's Chaos to get your week off to a great start!

Happy Monday!

  4. I love that bug! And I think it's a great picture. I'm living in the mid-west now, but grew up in Memphis and lived for a time in Birmingham. Happy Monday.

  19. What a FABULOUS capture!!! LOVE it!

    I always think of these creatures as the "paisley" moths .... but I believe the correct name for it is: Ailanthus Webworm moth. (I only know this because I posted one and someone told me the name ;)
