An Afternoon with the Peonies (and one bug)

Peonies not yet ready

I went back to Gilsland farm with friends (socially distancing, of course) to visit the peonies which had just recently come into bloom. You can see how they’re lined up in rows, prior to blooming, in the photo to the left. Their colors were quite spectacular, as you can see. I took these with my macro lens. My friend, Dave, spotted what I later identified as a Banded Longhorn Beetle that was taking in the peonies, also. These guys are not particularly destructive.

And just as a reminder, your experience will be much better if you view these images on a large computer screen or smart TV, being sure to click on any image to enlarge.
