Reflections on a Common Daisy and its Trio of Visitors

July 20th, 2019 by Michael Dyet

Hmmm, in the full bloom of summer, can a common Daisy be a highlight?

I am stuck inside again this weekend rehabbing my temperamental back. It pains me greatly not to be outdoor in the arms of Mother Nature in the full bloom of summer. Alas, I can only live vicariously once again through photos taken earlier this year.

Simplicity is the theme of this post as I look back at moments when the Daisy provided the showcase for delicate denizens of the grass.

This Pearl Crescent nestles down on a Daisy for a rest break before using it as a launching pad for another foray. The Daisy nods into the perch of the Crescent in deference to it.

This Long-horned Beetle chooses a Daisy as the stage to pause and ponder life. The world holds its breath for a moment to freeze-frame this portrait of simplicity.

In this photo, a Daisy plays host to a European Skipper with its line-etched orange attire. The green stalks of foliage to the right take the form a forest in miniature sheltering the skipper.

Three living metaphors for the elegant simplicity of nature as summer lounges in the lazy days of July.
