Beetles, a magnolia, and a butterfly

The weather is a lot more pleasant today. Lots of clouds and a bit of rain this morning and a relatively mild high of 94F. 10 degrees cooler than the past few days. *whew*

Here's two pictures I just took in my yard a few minutes ago. The title up above pretty much tells the whole story. I'm going to post this on my Nature Pictures blog also since I've not posted there in over a week.

Above, as you can see, we have a fading magnolia bloom that is providing living space for a few beetles. Not the guitar wielding type tho. And below we have a butterfly that's sipping some nectar just a few feet away from the magnolia tree.

I can't see the butterflies here for all of the honey bees, wasps, hornets and other stinger bugs

All sensitively captured. A great art, Utenzi!

I am soooo glad it has cooled down here. I didn't know you had a nature picture blog. I missed that...I'll have to check it out.
