A FEW CLOSE UPS......AND A MOSAIC

While away I have had some difficulty getting my links to work, pop-ups saying I need to reset my settings to make them work.  Not really wanting to do that I sometimes can't link up to the memes, it's a bit hit and miss.  If any of our kind hosts see that I am trying to participate but haven't linked in, please would you do that for me?  Thanks so much!  I would really appreciate it.


These were found on the walking path next to Bull Run.









I am also linking with the following memes, with my thanks to ours hosts for all their hard work.

  17. That emerald beetle is just incredible. I think I saw something almost like it in China, but have never seen anything like it here or on the mainland.
