Too much better food in the garden so it does not come anymore.



Aphids on the new Rose Growth:



Spider on a Rose Bud:

Thanks K ...Nice to see you here I do hope you are feeling better.
I wish I had a better Macro Lens I take so many pics with the Tamron one I have now, though there are better ones around.. You know I really enjoy looking for insects and seeing the pics up so huge on the computer monitor close is right I love zooming in and out looking at the bodies its so interesting.
