When we look at flowers, as often as not, we find them populated. In my garden this week, I've seen bees and butterflies, mostly the cabbage whites, ants and sowbugs. And spiders, always the spiders. This week there was an orange one I hadn't seen before. Running, of course. Most of the critters didn't hang around long enough to get a photo. But there was one fly so happy on her bouquet of parsely flowers that she ignored the camera a couple of inches away.

And there are always the ones I don't see until I upload the photos to the computer. Here, a very small orange-bellied beetle of some sort climbs a blade of lawn grass.
