The bees are sluggish as the seasons change.
Easier to capture a photograph as they’re not flitting from flower to flower.
Zinnias are supposed to be easy to grow. I saw these in Columbus Ohio last weekend but maybe next summer I’ll try. They were so vibrant.
Bee photography in my friend Joan’s garden has been an interesting experience. Joan keeps two hives of bees. When we walk through the garden she knows which bees are hers. When I left the first time she gave me a jar of honey
My return trip to Joan’s I took her a hat of apple butter. As we sat outside, I was determined to photograph a bee on the purple asters. The bees wouldn’t land for long and my hand wasn’t that steady, coming up with lots of blurry shots.
My mother loved asters. Joan said last year she inadvertently cut them down to the ground thinking it a weed. And look at the gorgeous flowers now.
