Pics from the Preserve: Love Bugs

Last of 5 posts: Photos taken while camping Memorial Day weekend in Horseshoe Lakes Preserve, one of many Thousand Trails/NACO campgrounds.

Our 290-acre home preserve in Vermillion County, Indiana, is named for its large horseshoe-shaped lake, surrounded by 10 smaller spring-fed lakes.  This is where I shot the dragonfly I use for my gravatar.

I originally set out to photograph these blooms but changed my focus when I spied these love bugs.

If you look closely, you will find one of the bugs contemplating the big leap! My focus is a little off but I did get in some practice trying to shoot from the ground up. Oh, well, practice makes perfect.
