    My dad and I took a long weekend up in northern Wyoming. Outside the cabin were these tiny late blooms of flowers with numerous bees and other insects flying around. I focused on getting a picture of what I believe is called a Bee Fly. I got this shot, but didn't notice until I got the image up on my big monitor that I'd actually captured the bee fly as well as another little creature. DSC00370-2sc.jpg

    Serendipity! Taking a photo, and then finding the picture was even better than you expected.
    Hope you and your dad enjoyed your long weekend.

    The spider is one of those that pounces on its prey and doesn't use a web. Nice shot.
