    That is a beauty!! Love how it is framed with the pink flowers Anne.

    Thanks for telling me that I messed up on the flower name. When I looked at it I realized that I had photographed two yellow flowers and this one is not the weed. I had been led to believe that the tall yellow ones the bloom like a Dandelion were the Knapp Weed but now see that they are the purple. What I posted is actually the wild sunflower according to my book... and it is always a good idea to give things the right name :0)

    Love that black and white pattern, but I think even more fascinating is the metallic silvery shine of his segmented body!
