Blog Your Blessings

If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther

I saw a pretty dandelion so I took a photo of it. . .
and another.
Then, I found one that hadn't opened yet. . .
and then decided to take a photo of just part of it. . .
AND THEN, we had a visitor!
It stayed on without bothering me or noticing that I had a camera. . . or maybe it thought it had the better choice.
It was more interested in the nectar it had found than an intruder with a camera.
So, in the end, we were both happy. It feasted and I got my shots in before it decided to go elsewhere.

Simple things that make one smile and are unexpected are definitely a blessing. I hope it blessed your day with a bit of joy in seeing it too!

Your getting so good at taking these macro's there just gorgeous.
And yes i really do love my critters, even ones that i won't be keeping. Boy will it be hard to let go of them when the time comes and it won't be long either.

Lucky you, the photos are gorgeous! We seem to have less and less bees and bumblebees. :-(

Your pictures put a smile on my face! I like this beast eating without noticing you were above taking pictures!
In France, this flower is called "pissenlit", and in the older times, poor people used to eat it!

Beautifully Done,

Well, you may miss the larger zoom, but you are making up for it in your macors.

Oh, man, these are awesome photos. I love dandelions. They are drops of sunshine rising from the earth. They are pretty. Plain and simple.

I look at them and wonder, "What's the problem?" No answer comes.

And that is the answer.

God bless.

Here you have some great shots. Your spring has sprung more than ours, to put it like that, but there were bumblebees at our cottage yesterday.

Dandelions are one of my fave flowers! I like them too when they haven't bloomed yet and those little feathers come flying about. We call it "wishing feathers".

Thanks for the reminder about linking Neo I'll be updating my post now. :-)

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
