This Is What I'm Talking About!



Nothing too amazing, just a lone honey bee gathering pollen in my yard. These are the types of photos I miss when using a point-and-shoot camera.

I'm actually quite fond of honey bees. Used to keep bees back in the day. I think I had as many as 8 hives at one time.

Paul and I talk about getting involved again. It's an incredibly interesting hobby.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. It's a beauty here in the Northeast.

Ponders all of that stinging ... wince.

you can only really get this kind of shot with an SLR, it blurs the background and focuses on just your subject. Very nice job Sandy!

Nice job. That camera is working out well for you.

Great photo! Looks like the camera is all that you hoped it would be. I can't wait to see it. I'm curious about how big it is.

Photography, travel, real estate, writing, cooking, fund-raising, bee-freaking-keeping...? Is there ANYTHING you can't do?

Badass Geek said...

Very nice.

Personally, I think bees are interesting to watch. From a distance.

Very nice picture- love the new camera :) I don't really mind bees, I try to ignore them really ;)

Sandra said...

Great shot! I'm glad that it was too busy to notice you!

You used to keep bees?
(Where've I been?)
Has anyone told you how scary/crazy that is?!!
I'd never.
I couldn't.
There'd be shrieking, peeing and crying.

That's an incredible shot. Bees scare me...especially since my daughter got stung last year and it wasn't pretty. But I do love me some good honey!
