You may have already figured out that I
like love to take photographs.
Not only do I like to take them, but I enjoy seeing other people's photographs.
While perusing the web, I have seen the neatest photographs of bees at places
Having been inspired by the awesome shots these ladies have captured,
I hoped to have an opportunity to photograph a few bees.
This opportunity came more quickly than I hoped, when I recently visited my parents' house.
I headed out to their back yard hoping for some lovely flowers to photograph.
To my surprise not only was there a plethora of flowers, including this magnolia blossom,
but there were numerous bees!
Many bees swarming about a particular pink bush.
The bush has quite long branches,
and I was able to stand amongst them to photograph the bees as closely as I dare.
I was stung once or twice as a child, and that is not a feeling I have easily forgotten.
So, I didn't get as close as I could have, but close enough.
Today, I am excited to show you these two photographs of bees I took.
And, to all the excellent photographers (too many to mention them all) that inspire me, thank you!
Isn't it wonderful how another can encourage you to try something new
or improve a skill just by sharing something from their own life?
