Macro & Mellow Yellow Monday-Creative Exchange



Seen by ne'er an eye
Midst petals safely hidden
Savoring freedom

There is a cute little cucumber beetle ( I thought they were green ladybugs for a long time) sitting on  the flower enjoying his "alone time"!!

Pretty blossoms, but I must admit, I've not heard of a cucumber beetle before. I learn something new every day.
