So beautiful and I think spring as arrived.
Thanks Joyce and it’s about time spring has arrived to the midwest, just in time for summer! 🙂
Thanks and thanks for stopping by. Love the header photo you have on your blog. I thought it was either Carlsbad or San Elijo. 🙂
Great photos and fun too!
Thanks Janie. What dates are you and John going to be at Destin this winter?
Wow LuAnn, great shots. Love summer flowers. Awfully nice of that bee to cooperate. I bet that garden is starting to grow 🙂
That bee did not cooperate very well. She chased me all over the blackberry patch! Hope you are well. I’ve been thinking about you.
Very precious. So many areas are experiencing bee colonies dying-they are not sure why; mites, something. Crops in some places are endangered because of lack of pollination. So happy to see your little bee!
Gorgeous photos LuAnn! You do take amazingly beautiful photographs! 🙂
Amazing pictures….love them and, of course…you and Terry!
What great pictures, Lu. It was nice of her to do some work for your garden.
Good to see the bee busy at work. The dropping in the bee population is such a huge concern for so many farms.
Yes it is. She didn’t appear too happy to have me invading her space. 🙂
Yum…blackberries. So glad to see that little bee doing a great job!
Awesome photos! Hope you have a great weekend too!
they were all beautiful but the one with the blue sky in the background was surreal
Thanks LouAnn. 🙂
I loved!!! great photos!!!
Thank you Silvana. 🙂
These were great captures….
If only I had your camera. 😉
Fantastic macro shots! Such incredible detail of your little visitor. She’s actually hugging the flower in the second shot. Sweet!
Thanks Gunta. I am currently reading reviews of other cameras to get something with more zoom power and a little better macro capability. There are so many out there that it is mind-boggling.
Love the header photo. Of course I am partial to Hostas.
Your little friend is lovely and very photogenic.
My mother-in-law has them all over the yard. I love them as well, all the textures and colors.
very charming visitor indeed! you captured a great up close moment…wow! i love it ♥
Thanks Sunshine! 🙂
you’re welcome, LuAnn! ♥
Thanks Nina. She just was not very happy to sit still for long or to have me chasing her around the berry patch. Oh, the things I have resorted to doing (lol). 🙂
Reblogged this on Spiritual challenges .
What amazing pictures, glad to see a bee, as here and in Germany it has been too cold for bees, and there are not many apparently. Bees are so important in nature! Amazing creatures!
It is so good to see them as I have been reading much about the disappearing bee. Thanks for stopping by Ute. 🙂
We use to call them Carpenter Bees growing up in the south. They are fun to watch and photograph!! I also loved your shot, of the Bumblebee,
with the sky in the background – beautiful!!
Thanks Sheila. I would love to have the photography equipment to capture images of insects up close.
I enjoyed all these closeups, especially the one with the blue sky background.
Thanks Lynne. 🙂
Stunning shots! Love the first and the third one. Thank you so much for the beautiful post!
My pleasure Amy. 🙂
I’ve an award for you, for the person who you are and the things you share with the world
Thank you for that..
Thank you so much Sunshine. Your beautiful spirit brightens my day. 🙂
Your images reminded me of how big their eyes are! Amazing!
Thanks Laurie. 🙂
Lovely photographs and something that could become rarer with all the bees disappearing…
Very sad indeed.
Both the visitor and the host are so beautiful:) such lovely shots
Thank you! 🙂
What excellent captures, LuAnn. Yummy blackberries. 🙂
I’m counting the days. 🙂
Great captures, Love those critters, I mean on pictures. ha ha Excellent.
Definitely only in photos and she did not seem to like me following her around the blackberry patch.
How lovely! Had never seen a blackberry plant, or flower before 🙂
Look at you taking really great pictures.
I am researching other cameras so I can hopefully continue to improve. I vacillate back and forth on size and weight because I know once we begin traveling again, many of my photos will be taken wile hiking. Not sure how I feel about carrying around a lot of extra weight.
Hi LuAnn, these pictures are great,they remind me of my childhood many moons ago when bees where all over our garden. There seems to be far less of them these days and that is so sad.
Thank you! It certainly is sad and makes me wonder for the future of the world’s food supply. Glad to see you in the blogging community Linda. I look forward to following along on your journey.
Thanks LuAnn,hope I can keep it up. I look with wonder at all the bloggers and how beautifully you all do it.
You know Linda, when I read someone else’s blog who writes so eloquently or see photography like the stunning photos that your hubby posts, it would be easy to say “I can’t compete with these bloggers”, and I have thought that on more than one occasion. I have come to realize that, when we find our own voice and are true to that voice, that is what is important and everything else falls into place. You will find those who you were meant to connect with. You are going to do great, I just feel it! 🙂
LuAnn you are up there with all the other bloggers my girlie. Thank you for the encouragement and very solid advice.
