Before Mowing

 I always get a little sad before mowing the lawn.  I let Dandelions, Salsify and Daisies grow tall between mowings, and have greatly enjoyed photographing insect and spider visitors.  This morning I found this beautiful Longhorn Beetle (above) hanging from the underside of a daisy.
 In a nearby patch of daisies I followed this butterfly as it fed on one after another before heading across the driveway to another yard.  Then, after the heat of the afternoon passed,
I mowed.  The daisies are now mulch, and I'll have to search elsewhere to photograph bugs on daisies.  The neighbors will be relieved to see the weeds gone, but I will be sad until they return.  But I know they will.  :)
