“Don’t hide yourself from the world and don’t let the world hide himself from you!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan
Photographing anything in or from the wild almost always offers a surprise. In this case, as I was photographing some daisies, a small beetle decided this would be a good time to come from its hiding place and see what all the commotion was about. For a while he was careful to put the stem between him and the camera, so I kept rotating the flower, but the composition was not good. Finally, he tired of the game and stayed put long enough for this image.
