This week’s photo challenge is “Close-up”. I like taking photos of insects and flowers, so the first photo ticks both boxes. I love the way this solitary bee (possibly a Megachile species) is totally totally covered in pollen. It is of course exactly what the flower wants, as the bee, when it moves off to a new flower, will bring the pollen with it.
The butterfly in the photo below is called a green-veined white because the underside of its wings (which you can’t see) are greeny-white and have a distinct vein pattern.
