"fly on the vine" - photo taken by me by the pond near our house
[image: a black-and-yellow-striped fly with iridescent wings, perched on the end of a curly vine.]
i should add that Mom let me use her camera and if she had not done that i probably would not have had a camera to use for any of these. it’s a really good camera, too — she got it on sale (she gets EVERYTHING on sale).
i should also add that all of these are retouched at least a little bit.
