We lived on a farm in Northwestern Michigan for many years. Lots of animals and insects around. Here are a couple of them. Slides are now about 25 years old and starting to fade. Most I've been able to correct to the original color.
We had a large patch of Lavender growing near our back porch that attracted many moths, bees and butterflies when it was in bloom. Skippers of all colors really loved the flowers. It was a nice stable spot for me to set up my tripod and focus on a flower, and usually within a few minutes there was something there to photograph besides the flower.
This was back when there were many bees around.
Lots of grasshoppers in the late summer too.
