~ a flying rest in the cool morning air.. I have been told that this is a fungus gnat.. If that is correct then I have to say.. that is one BIG gnat! I am afraid I don't know much about bugs.. this fellow sat calm and still for me to make his photograph.. then I tried to touch it to be sure it was alive.. It flew quickly away.. If you know what it is .. feel free to comment so that we will all know..
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.. won't you let me know you were here by leaving me a comment?.. I welcome both comments and followers.. I hope you have a great day!


  1. Great series of photos. Thanks so much for including us at Today's Flowers. I have enjoyed every one of them.

  2. I think blue glass is so pretty! I don't know the name of that bug, but I agree that if it's a gnat, it sure is a big one! :)

  3. Great shots! I came over from Mellow Yellow Monday to look at that beautiful fall flower.
