Life is a collection of little lives and each day needs to be spent finding beauty.
My camera is a great excuse to walk and to observe nature. Not every picture is worthy for later processing, but a surprising number are pretty good.
While photographing the bees with my camera, I’ve observed how they attempt to knock each other off the flowers. I imagine it’s a survival technique – if the flower is good, why should they try a different one even though others are nearby without competiton? The bees try to chase away each other, as well…
Bee butts are cute, but what I got was a bee wearing pantaloons while upside down in a thistle!
Having something that is pretty for the sake of pretty is refreshing. It gives our life a daily harvest of beauty and color.
One thing I particularly enjoy about post processing my photos is learning new things. Joining a monthly texture club encouraged me to stretch my skills, see what others did, and enhance my photographs.
