Macro Monday & 31 Days of Reflection minus a couple

Wow it's been a tough few days but I'm hanging in there. 
My mom is home from the hospital and doing okay but there are still issues I have to deal with like taking her to doctor's appointments, taking her BP and being the "worrywort" that I am I tend stress over the little details far more then I should. 

So here is my entery for Macro Monday over on Lisa's blog.

I was out taking photo's of "orange" items for another challenge and this was one of my Zinnia's.  As I was shooting photo's this  Box Elderbug walked onto the flower and I snapped a bunch of pictures.  I liked this one the best.  I love how this photo shows both the detail of the bug and the flower.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.  I will try my best to get around to comment on the other enteries. If I'm not able to leave comments on all your blogs I just want you to know that I really enjoy looking at your photo's.  Don't forget to pop over to Lisa's blog and check out all the other enteries.  There are some awesome shots there.

Since I've missed a couple of days now of my 31 Days of Reflection due to being at the hospital with my mom I thought I'd just pick up here today and continue on through the month as I am able to.

My selection for today: Obladi, Oblada by the Beatles.  Also used in a TV called, Life Goes On,  I think it's fitting given my life the past few days.

  7. oh my gosh! the detail on this bug is wonderful! I don't know that I've ever seen a bug like this? I live in California so perhaps this bug is common in other areas?
    I came over from Scavenger Hunt Sunday - thanks leaving a comment on my blog... it's nice to be able to visit new blogs & see other photographers... I'll be back - hope your mom gets to feeling better.

  13. OMG Ida, your photo is magazine quality!!! Awesome job, I know what it's like taking care of sick people, dragging them off to doctors appts and standing hours in pharmacy lines. Good luck to ya!

  14. I love the way you are able to capture the bug so beautifully on the flower. This is such an awesome shot. Kudos. I, too, have had a stressful week...have been out of commission due to my ongoing back problems. It is such a “pain in the back!” The doctor put me on prednisone yesterday so today the spasms have not been so back. Hope to be able to get back to my classroom tomorrow. Loved the music selection...and I want to use it on my blog. Hope I can figure out how to do it. I have not posted since my macro Monday so I can get caught up on my commenting. I know you are giving your mom the best of loving care. My 40 year old baby came home this weekend to nurture me and it did wonders. Take care and try not to stress out too much. genie
