A nice series of a Swallowtail. Featuring my first good pic of a butterfly in flight.
I took all of these last week in Illinois, nothing better than being waist deep in flowers while bees buzz around you gathering pollen and other bugs just try to stay out of the way. But then there is this fella that considers all the bee activity as a call to lunch.
I give you the Assasin Bug, at least I think its one. 🙂
These are the rest of the pics I got last Sunday at the University of Illinos of the saddest place in the Big 10. Usually the stadium is closed but I saw the gates open and I thought I would give it a try and luckily a grounds keeper said it was o.k. to snap a few pics. I called it the saddest place in the Big 10 because the U of I football team SUCKS! They used to be a powerhouse but these past few years my old High School could beat them, maybe its the players or most likely its the coaching staff but in my opinion its that ever since the University got rid of Chief Illiniwek (The team mascot) they have gone down hill.
