Yes, the title is correct. Life ‘on’ not ‘of’ a daisy.
A daisy in the garden is often passed over for closer inspection. After all, it’s just a daisy, right. Well every so often I stop and check out the wild daisies around our place. This year I decided to track what was visiting the daisies. And I was duly impressed with the variety of visitors.
So I thought I’d share some of my findings with you. Nothing extraordinary but worthy of note.
Unfortunately, I can’t identify some of these. So my challenge to you us, do you know what they are? Let me know if you can id them.
My first visitor is one of my favourite little spiders. They are so interesting and very adept at hiding themselves from the casual observer. The first two shots demonstrate why they are called crab spiders.
These next shots give you an idea of their diminutive size.
Sometime more than one visitor shows up and they seem to face off against each other – it seems hard to be territorial on a daisy!
And it appears the spider won that showdown.
Even crab spiders have different looks…
And then there are these visitors. All I can say is that they are bugs.
And even the daddy long legs tries to share life on the daisy.
If you know what these were, let me know.
Now I realize that daisies aren’t exactly wild life but just because they aren’t bears doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a look. So I hope you enjoyed this peek.
