Monday, in my boredom, I decided to go outside and try to capture pictures of the hummingbird that frequents my feeder. I love hummingbirds.
This was the closest shot of got of him. Don’t see him? Neither do I, but the clouds were pretty. And soothing. And not the hummingbird.
So, I decided that if I couldn’t get a shot of the hummingbird that I needed something more stationary to photograph.
Enter the bumble bee, lovingly pollinating my lavender.
I took over 20 pictures of these stupid bumble bees, and all that came out was this one.
And this one.
Look hard, he is there. These things are almost as quick as the hummingbird, which made me rethink the subjects I am photographing.
This one sat still for me for over an hour.
She is much more my speed.
