    Dramatic… would love to have you work with all my photography I took in Vegas over the 4th!

  • Thanks Susan – Oh yes I bet you would, but you couldn’t afford me LOL
    I saw you uploaded one and I noticed you have a Sony Cyber-shoot. I have one too – had it for years and it has been a good little pocket camera. Carry it with me whenever I can.

    Love the title, Kira…The tender marigold stands stoically, defending its spot in Nature…

  • Thank you Susan, it always starts so fine, but at some point there will be the usual invasion of aphids starting on one plant and rapidly spreading to the rest till everything is sticky….and when it rains there is mildew on the leaves. I give up ☺

    Lovely capture. The dreaded insect though… well, let’s say we aren’t on speaking terms even though it was 15 years ago they ate all my roses. ;o)

  • LOL – I don’t speak Aphid either… they are like guest who come uninvited and refuse to go as long as there is any food left. You can try to kill them, but there are just too many… ☺
