The theme this week is “near”.
I had to get very near to the little praying mantis in these shots. She was hunting on the stem of one of the day lilies this morning.
To carry the theme a little farther out, I would say that my day lily garden is as near to perfect as it ever gets.
Sadly, many of them are nearing the end of their seasonal display. Good thing I have a few flowers that are nearly ready to open.
