This little guy was hopping through the alpine strawberries. Here he is doing his best to look like a rock. As soon as he saw me coming near him with the camera, he hunkered down in this "you can't see me 'cuz I'm hiding" pose.
I saw him!
Not a garden friend! A bad, bad, cute garden enemy! Strawberry Thief!
This one made me giggle. The moment before I clicked the button to take this picture of the bee, an ant climbed out of the blossom. This is the exact moment that the bee and ant noticed each other. I could actually see the surprised reaction of the bee in his movements. He flew away a split-second later as the ant ran off.
