Macro, Mosaic, and Blue Monday

I’ve finally captured a close-up of a bug! Or is it insect? Or arachnid? HERE is an interesting article explaining the difference between bugs and insects. In the meantime here is a macro of a black widow spider that likes to hang out on my patio.

Would you like to see more macros of flora and fauna? Go to

Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins. What else can you do with pumpkins once you make your pumpkin pie and carve a face or two? HERE are a few interesting ways you can use pumpkins.

For more mosaics go to Mosaic Monday.

Here is a picture of the lobelia plant. I love these delicate little flowers and this is a good time for planting here in the low desert.  I’m linking with Sally for Blue Monday.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

  1. Can’t say I ‘m that keen on spiders (aren’t Black Widows deadly?) but the Lobelia is beautiful – just love that colour blue, and I love your photos of the pumpkins – what wonderful colours. Admiring your photos through Mosaic Monday – thanks for visiting and have a great week.

  2. Great job on capturing the spider in it’s web. It’s really fun when you discover you’ve caught the web in the just right light. The pumpkin mosaic is perfect for this time of year, and of course the Lobelia is a favorite fall flower here in Texas, too. Happy Blue Monday!
