I was in a field, tracking a Ceraunus Blue (a very small butterfly) when a flash of orange caught my eye.

I watched it land on this Common Beggar-Tick, and was amazed at how tiny it was--- I'd never seen one like it.

 

It was probably about 6mm from nose to back end. The flower was about 2cm across.

This little beauty let me follow it around and get quite a few shots. I was thrilled :))

 

I think this flower is Common Beggar-tick, Shepherd's needle, Spanish needle or quite a few other names.

I also found it as Bidens Alba or Bidens Pelosi, so if you know, I'd appreciate the input!

HWW!

 

I am continuing my theme this week of reflecting lakes from iconic North American locations.

 

This one is from Schwabacher Landing in the spectacular Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

 

I was lucky to have some wonderful still conditions and a pretty in pink sunrise on this particular morning.

 

My dream image would also include a moose standing in the foreground pond - I have seen images of them at this location - oh well maybe next time!

 

I hope that you enjoy and have a good evening!

Some of my best images from the trip to Yellowstone were my otter images which I love, so here is another one, and there will probably be more.
