Wildflower Friend or Foe?!


Last night in our yard I saw this worm on this wildflower. Tonight I wondered if it might still be there…and it was! Between last night and tonight, I took probably 100 photos of this worm/flower. Not until I looked at the photos on my monitor did I notice there was this one photo (just one out of all of them) where this worm’s head was visible, as opposed to buried in the flower. I kinda like this photo. (But, Bill says these worms bite.)

To distinguish the worm’s eyes, click on the photo at least once, and maybe twice.

I know I’ve not posted a lot recently. However, I have been scanning some more Rolfe, Iowa, school yearbooks. I’ve also been gleaning interesting information from Rolfe’s newspaper archives. Once we hit July 12, 2012 (one year before the beginning of Rolfe’s sesquicentennial celebration), I’ll start posting more over the next twelve months about Rolfe and Rolfe’s history.

I’ll post before July 12, but wanted to give a heads-up on what I’ve been doing and what is upcoming.

    Thanks, Jeff. I thought of you when I was taking the photos and as I posted. As I was taking the photos I thought, “How does Jeff get such clarity in his photos?” and that you like to get a lot of detail in your photos. I’m glad you inspire me.

    Well . . . I can’t say I’m a big worm fan (though this one is, I admit, kinda “cute” ;-)), but the flower is gorgeous–the color and the composition. And I love how natural and “scattered” the petals look. Beautiful, Louise!
