I love taking pictures. Often I come along something of interest. Like the first two photos, which to be honest, I have no idea what the red stuff on the leaves is.
Whatever it is, it's kind of glitter like.
See the bug in the rose ?
I thought this was interesting, some kind of growth on these leaves.
Okay, so clover may not be the most interesting plant but the leaves are pretty.
In the camp area was this bush full of aphids and ants. For some reason I never got a photo with the ants in it. However I did discover the ants bite. I do believe the ants protect the aphids and milk them. Looking close you can see little drops of some kind of liquid.
Here's a shot of an interesting beetle on a sweet smelling rose.
A close up of Cotton Wood trees seed. Those little floating fairy like things in an earlier essay.
Sap which is easily removed with cooking oil. Turns into amber after a long while. I find it pretty before all that also.
