A large black wasp or wasp-like insect was burrowing into these horsemint blossoms as though its life depended on it.  I loved the metallic neon blue on its wings.  DP235-2014  Posted August 23; processed August 22. Horsemint (Monarda punctata) is a native plant in the mint family.  It has bracts that typically are showier than the relatively inconspicuous blossoms.  You can't see it on these stalks, but many of the plants have bracts that are a distinct lilac or lavender hue.  Another common name is Spotted Beebalm.  Disambiguation notice:  Other plants have been given the common name 'Horsemint'.  In fact, if you simply google 'horsemint', two additional plants appear early in the 'greatest hits' list, namely Monarda citriodora (Lemon Beebalm) and Mentha longifolia (European Horsemint).  Continue down the list of google hits, and you'll see that 'Horsemint' is also used for wild bergamot (Monarda fistulosa), and almost every other kind of Monarda.  To confuse matters even more, there's a relative of Monardas, Blephilia ciliata, that is called Ohio horsemint.

8/23/14 - Rear signal light on a vintage truck.  I'd never seen one of these before.  It wasn't very big.  Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the old red and white roadster.

22.08.14 - William and Grace  This is actors Adam Fielding and Victoria Rigby as brother and sister William and Grace Crowder, two of the main characters in "Tell Them of Us". These shots were from filming earlier in the week, I just did the vintage processing last night.  Thank-you for the comments on my image of the Lancasters and Vulcan flypast yesterday. I put the same photo out on Twitter and it was quickly bought by a regional magazine, which was a pleasant surprise :)
8/23/2014 ~ Fountain Waters  This is the lovely fountain in Forsyth Park, Savannah, Georgia. The park occupies 30 acres in the historic district of  Savannah. The fountain at the north end of the park was added in 1858 and is reminiscent of fountains in the Place de la Concorde in Paris and in Cuzco, Peru.  Thank you for the kind comments on yesterday's misty morning shot!
