Up Close Along The Trail

Below, Red Cup Fungus.  Likes to grow on the woodland floor.  Very tiny; smaller than your pinky nail. 
                         Spider was hiding in the thistle bloom awaiting the unsuspecting bee.

Summer Leftovers

All these shots were taken with a 70-200 mm lens and a Cannon closeup filter.
Monarchs feasting before their journey south.

Wing closeup... almost looks like terry cloth.
Regular old annoying fly.
Humming bird moth... they flit from flower to flower just like their avian look-a-likes.
Bees don't smile.
Pollen clings... you can take more back to the hive that way.
Moth... funny looking... except to another moth.
