As much as I love bluebonnets, something likes them even more.
Bees! So I have to be very wary when I’m getting up close and personal with Texas’ state flower.
Earlier this month when I was snapping happily away at wildflowers in our neighboring master-planned community, I noticed another insect also loving the pretty blue flowers along with the bees.
Three different times when I saw a bee, a ladybug was in close proximity. Which, of course, made it a little difficult for me to get a good photo . . . especially one time when a bee chased me away. I didn’t stick around to ask why it was being so protective of its orange friend.
But sometimes I was able to isolate a ladybug and feel grateful that it was harmless and wouldn’t mind the photographic attention. It was nice not having to worry about being stung.
Ouch! Guess I was wrong. That’s not much of a “lady”bug at all!
