Love is in the air

The other day I was out looking for more butterflies when out flew this strange wasp-like insect. I kept thinking, "What the heck kind of wasp is this?" When I got the photos on the computer, Double D looked over my shoulder and said, "Looks like you got two of 'em mating." Huh! Sure enough! I could not see that through the viewfinder, nor was I noticing it on the screen. Man, my eyes have really gotten bad. The whole time I was shooting I had no idea that I was stalking this poor couple. Hee hee.

Ya mind? We're a little busy here!
Take a picture, it'll last longer. Oh, wait...
Let me caress your tentacle, my love
Mmmmm....let's bury ourselves in the blossoms...
Hang on tight, Edna!
Whee! No hands!
Upside down is great!
Bye, ya pervy camera person!
Our 22nd anniversary is tomorrow, so love really is in the air. Y'all have a good weekend!
