Bug Photo 

Two small, nearly transparent wings propel this little bug from flower to flower. This image is so close you can see the little black lines that make up the interesting design on its yellow back. While the focus is on the flying bug, the petals of the flower lay gracefully in the background.

Thank you, CU photographer karinwilcox, for submitting your photo this week. See more photos of flowers, bug and horses in karinwilcox’s My Gallery.
