Hovering and flying over the flowers at this time of the year are the bees. While I’d mentioned earlier that I only saw one bee regularly on the salvia, my favorite boy toy said he’s seen quite a lot of bees during the day. There must be – my squash plants, while not very big, have a lot of baby squash starting. They’re only about an inch long, but those flowers got pollinated.
As I’ve done the daily photo challenge, I’ve learned a lot more about using my camera and have greatly improved a lot of the shots that I’ve taken. Unfortunately, the bees are not among them. These pictures are okay, but I hope by summer that they are much better.
I am trying a slide show for the first time. I like it! A big thank you goes to Kathy Harrison and her daugher-in-law at The Just In Case Book Blog for using this technique. I didn’t realize I could do this until I saw her do it.
