I can't say I'm a fan of creepy crawlies in general, but I have started to embrace their presence among the flowers in the garden. I started small (pun intended) with ladybugs, dragonflies and then bees, and an occasional wasp and I even have a small white spider in my collection. Now while a spider doesn't technically have wings, it can fly or leap or... to its next destination, so I've included him here as well. You'll probably laugh as you go through these images because admittedly they are images of flowers that just happen to have a visiting insect. Baby steps!
