Bringing Home A Baby Bumble Bee

I am having a ball with the Macro lens.  WOW!  Just WOW!  I cannot wait to try out the telephoto, too.

The next was a pretty large bumble bee.  I didn’t realize bees were so fast or so hairy.

I found Smurf Village.  Couldn’t find the little blue guys though. They must have been somewhere else.

This is what Bec’s nightmares are made of.  No Bec,  I did not kill it.  It hopped flower to flower.

Dragon Fly, What Big Eyes You Have!

It is interesting once YOU capture something in photo, it becomes yours, and you start noticing things you have not before.  I have noticed the beauty of dragon flies before, even commented on a blog recently about how beautiful their pictures were, but it was not until today when I looked at my pictures that I noticed just how large their eyes are.  Photographers truly do see through different eyes.  I am not in the class with the pros, I will never reach that point, but I am so excited for the eyes that I see through now.

It just amazes me daily the things I am starting to see anew.  From the sand on the ground, to the true beauty of flowers.  I have always thought flowers were nice, but never been one to notice the shapes of petals or drops of rain on them, or tiny creatures in their habitat.  I am so grateful for this photographic journey of healing and awakening to the world around me.  These pictures all come from Mother’s gardening.  I can see why she finds peace when working around it.

Yellow Flowers Are So Pretty To Me

Yellow Flowers Are So Pretty To Me

I Took these yesterday. If I am correct, we gave them to Mother a couple of years ago. She has kept them alive.

Consider the Lilies of the Field

Some of Mother’s green thumb gardening again. These lilies grow massive and beautiful.

The insect on the first lily enjoyed a fresh drink of rain water off of the lily petal.
