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.

The Frog and the Dragon Fly

I was excited to capture these two shots.  It is like they knew I was having a rotten day yesterday and so they posed for me.  Thanks little creatures, you make my day.

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.

Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me

I remember when as a child swimming and one of these horse flies would come around, we would scream “Horse Fly”!  and everyone would splash and dive under the water.

One landed on the truck today and was able to get a picture close up.

Around the Wildflower Garden Today…

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.

Danger, Danger! Step Away From the Nest!

I took this earlier today. My nose not much farther than the length of the camera from the nest. One of the scouts buzzed by my ear warning me to step back. I quickly obliged.

Out of the Darkness and Into the Light

The next day my caterpillar friend was still out there and I figured out how to get the camera to focus on him. YAY!
