bee

Early Morning, Part 1

While walking the pooches this morning around 8AM, we came upon a mother duck with her babies. Once we were done with our stroll, I rushed home and grabbed the camera hoping to get some good photos of the little group. They turned out okay. I like that I can see the dew on the little ones because they were wading through high grass.

Early Morning, Part 2

Once I finished up the session with the duck family, I decided to get some photos of my Choral Angel Daylilies blooming away in the garden.

As I leaned in and focused to take the first picture you see here, the bee landed on the flower and everything was in focus. I had to immediately calm myself so I could snap the photo because I might only get one chance before it flew away. But it did not move. So I moved in even closer and got another one. Then I kept clicking and clicking while barely managing to contain my excitement at this rare opportunity.

The bee probably stayed in the same spot and position for thirty seconds. I got thirteen photos.

Thanks Bee!
