    The lighting on this is exquisite!

    • Thank you, Debra. Sometimes when the light is just right outside these white peonies look positively luminescent. I’m glad that comes through here.

      • My immediate thought was how luminescent it looks! I’m still waiting for our peonies to open.

        • Yes it seems to have an inner light, this one. I am late getting to the peonies here, but managed to snap some in the nick of time.

          • Ours are still waiting for just the right moment to bloom.

  2. Wonderful! Opalescent. And the tiny insect is a perfect touch.

  4. That glow is just irresistible.

    • 🙂 That’s exactly how I feel about peonies!

    Yes, all of the above: Exquisite, Opalescent, luminescent, gorgeous, irresistible. Not to mention that I found my initial spelling of opalescent as opulescent was incorrect, so I have added a new word to my lexicon.

    • Thank you! Totally can relate about the spelling. 🙂

    LOVE THE BUG!!! And I accidentally commented as Chuck Landrey a moment ago… so sorry. I’ll have to tell Chuck his WP account was inadvertently commandeered. LOL!

    • Haha, that’s so funny about Chuck’s account. How did you manage that? Glad you like the little bug. 🙂

  7. The peony is gorgeous and as others have mentioned…it glows! I think your insect may be related to grasshoppers, crickets and/or katydids. but it’s hard to tell.

    • Thank you, Steve. Yes, I was unsure about this little one. I was glad to catch him before he hopped away.

  8. Your peony is positively preciousss, and it absolutely glows from within. I agree with Steve G about your little insect nymph–those are most definitely jumping (or, rather, hopping) hind legs.

    • Thank you, Gary. Yes, as I said to Steve, I was happy to catch a shot of that little insect before he hopped away!

  9. Loving the insect.
