aglake #1: The Garden Reopens!
2

Around here everything is dull brown except the sky, the evergreens, and the occasional patch of leftover snow.  No red anywhere.  But summer will come and with it bright flowers.

There is a story here.  All last Spring the local Botanic Garden was closed due to COVID and nobody got to see the Spring flowers, neither the tulips nor the meadow filled with daffodils.  Finally on  Monday, 8 June 2020, the garden reopened; I took this picture that first day.  There were lots of changes, but the flowers knew nothing about that.

(I had been taking pictures of birds and forgot to change my camera settings.  The shutter should have been slower and the aperture smaller.  But I was out in the garden at last!)

Never heard of a red-veined dropwing. Pretty cool looking insect. Thanks for sharing.

Kelly's 2nd - Butterfly with Red Flowers
4

I always take a few days off work the week after the time change so I have been hoping for some nice weather to get out and take some pics. Unfortunately it's been gray and rainy most of the last few days. Today I decided to visit our local butterfly house and was able to capture a couple of shots with red in them.

Here is the first:
