Some bugs out of focus as they more to fast and before you know it.
They are gone, that called old age for me as I cannot keep up with them.

Too fast for me, almost in a hurry



This one was too busy eating,.



These two were so busy doing something else whistle



The Blue banded bee was super fast and I missed it



Thats how I managed to bump into this dragonfly



A bit of a crop so you can see it close up.



Looks like a wasp..



The trouble maker is back again.





And we keep chasing it away.. club club

Yes I usually find them on my blue Salvias Cheryl which are flowering at present

Though this year all the bugs and things seem to be on the Crepe Myrtle that has been flowering for many months..

Great photos MA! The dragonfly is superb.
You got the most important bit of the bee anyway! LOL. I had one buzzing round me while I was spraying the other day. I noticed its loud hum first and then finally caught sight of it and you're right - they're fast! (It wasn't a toxic spray BTW)

Yours bugs are as exotic and tropical as your lovely plants, Mary-Anne. Great photography. Pity you have to chase the bird out, I would feel so privileged to have it in my garden. Of course my dogs would chase it out. Laughing Laughing

Lucky I have a Tony to chase that Egret out Betty that jolly bird got another skink as soon as I snapped that pic I was so annoyed I raced down the front steps and chased it away it flew off with the poor skink in its mouth.

It was back again this afternoon always around 4 pm as I heard Tony clapping his thongs together out the back that seems to get rid of it.. thumbs-up
