Bonus bug

One of the thing I especially like about macro and pseudo-macro photography is getting to see all the things that I don't notice directly. In this case, that would be the bug on the right hand side of the flower; no idea what kind of bug, but I like the post-facto noticing aspect of pictures like this. Helps remind me that the observed scale and the scales of activity that are present have only very slight overlap.

I'd guess it's a mosquito; it has a very mosquitoish jaunty air to its stance.

I could believe mosquito, especially as I seem to recall that a lot of them go for plant juices, rather than blood.
