After The Rain

Andy | Saturday, June 03, 2017 | Best Blogger Tips
Recently there was a rain storm that lasted for 24 hours. When it was over I decided to take some pictures of wife's Columbine flowers. I set my camera up on a tripod. The big surprise came when I looked into the view finder and spotted a strange creature that I had never seen before. That white thread like worm was squirming and twisting trying very hard to move on up higher. After searching the the internet the best identification I could come with was Horsehair Worms. Please correct me if I am wrong.

  5. Nice close-up Andy. I think you are correct about the ID of the worm. Worms are not my favorite creatures, they're gross... :)

  15. I love the shot but a horesehair worm is a new one to me. And I'm sorta hoping we don't have them here. Those poor columbines are looking nearly drowned but they don't seem to mind it.
