Morning walk 22-06-08 Part 2

A small wild flower with three different bugs on it. Don’t know what they are called though.
A very small wild flower only about the size of a cigarette filter.
This young ladybug /bird is still developing by the looks of it. He was very tiny…maybe 2-3mm. I wonder why they always seem to hang upside down?
This young dragonfly is only about 2 inches in body length. He allowed me to get very close without flying away. Here the camera lens is about 2 inches away from him. And last but not least, a robber fly.
