I Like Honey

Image
It goes without saying that if you like honey then you must like bees - right?  Ok probably not, but I do like bees, well I mean I don't have anything against them.  I don't think I have ever been stung, I hear it stings a little :o)

Bees are fun to watch, I mean really sit and watch!  They are so busy, never stopping to rest, going from flower to flower to flower, gathering all that yellow stuff and using their mouth thingies to somehow rub it onto their legs, or something like that, and because they move so much they are a lot of fun to try to photograph!  You must have patience, something I struggle to find, but today was a patience kind of day and I actually got some cool pictures of the bees that work in my front yard.

Grass

Does anyone love grass as much as me? I could have a yard with no grass to see. Dirt and rock could be all I had. And that would make me very sad.







Old Man Dog

My dog turned 12 in June, he is old, he isn't doing great, and we don't expect him to live much longer.  A week ago he was doing so bad we took him to the vet.  After his blood work came back normal it was determined that he was probably having heart issues.  He has been a good dog, a good companion, a good friend, a good dog.  Here is a picture I took of him earlier looking all sad while he carefully kept his eye on me and my camera to make sure I didn't get too close - he doesn't like macros :o)  Hopefully he lets me take a lot more photos before his body decides he has had enough.  Until then ...
