I have many photos of flowers – usually take them when in the garden department of the supermarket, they always have so many examples you do not find in your own garden.
However today I have a photo I took today in the garden. It seems that the rose chafer is attracted to my Asian peony. Actually this peony grew from a seed from the mother plant, so I am especially proud of it.
It is not the peony with the filled flowers, but plain and simple, although as it gets older its flower seem to develop in size. I noticed that this peony had a visitor today, so this photo was a must.
I just love those bright and shiny rose chafer, I call them the kamikaze bugs of nature. They seem to be slightly short sighted, and I often find one stunned on the ground where it has flown into my window. They also make quite a nose when hitting the glass pane. The roses in my garden are not yet flowering, so the bugs are biding their time on the peony and this one was quite active. He even had an ant for company. The peonies are finishing with their flowers and the beginnings of the seeds are now appearing.
