So...here it is almost three months since my last post. I had to take a break. I'm slowly starting to
feel like taking photos again. I needed a rest from photography, blogging, and social media. Sometimes you just need to take a break and start fresh. That works for me. I'm excited about the new year and have lots of changes coming my way!
On a recent hike at Tanyard Creek I got to photograph some beautiful butterflies. The first one is a
Albino Female Orange Sulphur and the other a Gray Hairstreak. Both were gorgeous and I was beyond excited to spot them. There is nothing better than starting my day with a walk and my camera. You never know what you will see. This has been a great summer for photography with all the much needed rain we have had. I'm going to miss summer when she goes.
The sunlight speaks. And it's voice is a bird: It glitters half-guessed half seen half-heard. Above the flower bed. Over the lawn ...A flashing dip and it is gone. And all it lends to the eye is this - A sunbeam giving the air a kiss.
One early morning in June, I was lucky to get to share a rain soaked poppy patch with the bees. I sat
for hours watching them buzz all around me happily working away. Something about the gentle sound of their buzzing from flower to flower is so calming to me.
I hope to someday have my own flower gardens and maybe even a hive or two of bees. I want to make my property pollinator friendly. Lots of flowers and sweets for the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. I will give them what they want and I will get their company in return.
Sadly, the sweet little pollinators are in trouble. We can all help by creating more habitats and NOT using any pesticides! Please check out the links below for more info on saving our pollinators.
