    I was doing some chainsaw work on an old loggers road, clearing out several small young pines that had gotten bent over real bad from an ice storm back in January, and always take some gear along.
    Saw this single lone Queen Anne's lace growing up in the middle of a sunny stretch of that old loggers path, decided to set up and shoot it with the FD 100 macro lens I recently got.
    I was already very hot and sweaty from an hours work, it was intensely bright, I was in a hurry, and I never even noticed that was a mated pair until I was stepping through the playback folder a few minutes later.
    Incidentally, the Queen Anne's Lace flower is notorious for attracting bugs...no exception here...in the 1st photo there are at least 8 bugs visible on top of the blossoms, and probably as many more underneath, out of view.
