Blossoms & Bees, Etc.

Blossoms & Bees, Etc.

Continuing my macro studies, I noticed how beautifully my Texas Sage bush has been blooming the last couple of days (thanks to my husband’s faithful watering) and took a wander with my walker out to the front yard to capture some blossoms. I found some Oleander flowers along the way as well. When I got to the sage bush, it was a riot of color, and absolutely buzzing with hundreds of bees! I had a dickens of a time capturing any of them though, because they were so very busy. These were not lazy bees. They were frantic! Still I managed to snap a few, so I’m happy. On my way back into the house I stopped to appreciate a few other images, just to remind myself that anything can be a good photo. (Not every photo IS a good photo, mind you, but the potential is there far more often than we think…)

Oh, I should also mention I used my Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art for this outing – just to see what difference it might make. It’s a really good lens, but not suited for macro terribly well. So, lesson learned! I’m happy with these photos, but I’ll stick with the macro lens next time.

Until next time, take care, and go make some art!
