  2. After seeing that moth I don't see how anyone could be afraid of such beautiful creatures. Thanks for the link today Sue.

  3. Fabulous close ups of all the insects!

    I have had to chase Japanese beetles off my marigolds all summer, by dropping them into a jar of soapy water. Thankfully, they are not invading my roses.

  24. Love all except for yellow jackets and spiders, and they are plentiful on the TN River. We kill them with diligence. Who wants to walk into a web early in the morning, right?
