|Too pretty for an aggressive weed.|
My camera doesn't handle these bright whites as well as Laurie's does, so I decided to zoom into the shadowed throat of a flower, instead. And I'd forgotten my glasses in the car, so in the glaring sunlight, I could barely see the LCD screen; any macro photography would be sheer guesswork.
|I didn't see these spots, or I would have chosen the next flower, thinking they were dust.|
So I didn't notice these until I got home and loaded the photos onto the computer:
Red mites! I've never seen more than one at a time, before.
I'll be looking down the throat of every bindweed I see from now on.
