Here is a sampling of macro photography images from this past Sunday morning’s walk at the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area. Thank you to Janice Broda for finding and identifying most of these subjects.
The yellow corn-on-the-cob appearing eggs of the Zebra Longwing Butterfly nestled in the flower of a passion vine. Janice noted that this is a very succulent spot for the caterpillars since they will hatch right into an easy and nutritious meal.
Great Southern White Butterfly
The minute flowers of a privet.
More small privet flowers.
The privet flowers were a great attraction to bees while also enjoying the warm morning Sun.
