Animal Wednesday - Fly/Bee?

The animals capturing my attention lately have been all of the bees and bugs that are inhabiting our garden at this time of year. Our garden seems alive with buzzing glittering bugs. Trying to capture that glitter is a chore. I like the challenge. My Dearly Beloved has been taking pictures for me. This is a good thing. I have a little notebook that I try to do my bugs in. I also try to id the bugs. Not happening with this tiny guy. In reality it is about a 1/4" long and has golden metallic look. HAW to all.

I know what you mean about trying to snag an insect for a sketch, not so easy. I have taken photos myself of a few (dragonflys are my fave). This sketch is really interesting in the wonderful colors you have captured. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know what it is and really don't care. I just love what you have created. I love that you care. Beautifully done.
