The hour before sunset is my favorite time of the day to take photographs. Even though my flower bed runs east to west, I can usually get some good shots.
Here’s a few that I took tonight.
I’m always on the look-out for insects on the flowers. This tiny spider is barely an 1/8 of an inch long.
I thought this was lady bug when I took the shot, but now I’m thinking it may be a Japanese beetle. I didn’t realize he had two white spots on his shoulders and next to his eyes. He was about 1/4 inch long.
Here’s an illustration of the golden light just before sunset. The colors are perfect and every detail is visible. I like taking super close-ups of iris.
