Oh, with all due respect, I beg to differ with you Jeanne ;)  Here's sporting an awesome color combination, and looks pretty sharp on that flower.  Nice capture, Buddy!

I'll have to agree with BigSkyKen, that bug is as beautiful as that Zinnia.

Great shot Buddy!

Sorry, guys, but I have a "thing" about bugs and that was what drew my immediate attention.  To me, the picture would have been much nicer without it.   As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.     :D

Don't feel bad, Jeanne. You are not alone. I like shooting insects, but that bug appears to invade that beautiful flower.
That bug would surely look nice on a dark green leaf. Butterflies and bees. Yes they go with the flowers, but bug???
It is like adding tomato sauce to a good cup of coffee.

Sorry Guys, this time I have to side with Jeanne.   ;D

Bugs and flowers are as natural as it gets Mario but I do see your point about bees and Butterflies.

I understand your point also Jeanne.

Maybe you like this one Mario and it is truly a hand held shot. I was holding the bug and the camera.   ;D

Nice job, Don. Now, these shots are what validate my point. Bugs are one of God's beautiful creations specially when presented the way you did in the above photos. I will post my bug shot too... when I find it.

   Here is a good-looking bug (or beetle) I shot in my backyard some time ago.
   It's okay Jeanne, you can look.

That bug you were holding, Don, is a genuine bug, a hemipteran, and a rather good looking assassin bug.  You see that pointy thing under his body?   A piercing tool that injects a nasty toxin that really hurts.   

Lucky you didn't annoy him.

The "bug" on the red zinnia is actually a cerembicid, a longhorn beetle.   Don't know the genus or species, though.

Very informative, Barbie.
