Mosaic Monday - Insects


We hope that, when the insects take over the world,
they will remember with gratitude
how we took them along on all our picnics.
~ Bill Vaughan ~

I am joining Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
Please join the fun.
and
Have a great week.

Beautiful mosaic! Just had to look at the enlarged version and see each photo close up ... terrific shots.

What do you use to produce such a lovely mosaic? ... I love the framing and the background!

Totally nice presentation--such a colorful mosaic!

Eeeeuuwwww! You're making my skin crawl with this one, Jen! Funny but creepy-crawly, too.
I'd need a long distance lens 'cus I don't want to get close to any of those!

Love your bugs Jen. Was hoping to see the bee in flight that you took at the TBG.

The quote made me laugh. I've been knocking spiders out of windows for days now even though I really enjoy watching them weave. Wonderful mosaic and a fun theme.

I'm chuckling! I thought about doing one on bees! They're everywhere! I am letting my herbs flower so they might have their pollen.
I hope they remember me!

Pondside said...

Love that bee - and the ladybug! They're welcome in my garden.

Doro said...

Thanks for your visit. I have an insect mosaic planned for the future with a slug, a praying mantis, a spider, and a grasshopper. My husband always jokes about my choosing to photograph such things. "Ooooh, it's a bug, get the camera." Oh well, I own up to it. I find them intriguing (but don't want them in my home). I am glad you find them of interest too. Your pictures are even more great because of the colors of your backgrounds.

Diann @ the Thrifty Groove said...
