Pink Yarrow

Yarrow_beetle-201107

I photographed this Common Yarrow – Achillea millefolium – a couple of days ago. It was situated in the same field as the Wild Orchid. A widespread herbaceous perennial, its pretty florets were attracting all manner of insects and bees including the wonderful iridescent Beetle – one of which features in a previous post: Iridescent Beetle on Pink Hogweed.

    • Thank you Sheila! Yes – that best-dressed bug is back looking as dapper as ever! I took a few photos of this plant which had a variety of little creatures on it, but simply had to choose the shot with this beetle!

    • Thank you! It was lovely to see the pink version which was in a field full of pink clovers (and the pink wild orchid) too. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  1. Very nice! I have a shot of it in my camera right now. No pretty beetle, though. Our yarrow is mostly white, or very pale purple. I love this color.
