Late Summer Bumble Bee



A pretty patch of late summer wildflowers attracted my attention as well as the attention of a multitude to bumble bees.

Image captured with a 100-400mm lens F5.6 1=1600 sec. I used the fast shutter speed as this image was captured from the boat as it rocked gently in the waves.

Great macro of a bee and the flower is just so sunshiny and brings more brightness to a day.

You did a good job on this and the really liked the post the other day of the deer eating an apple. That was one of the scents I used to use to get rid of my smell and attract deer to me. LOL I could still get around in those days. Of course my kids were next to being babies and now they are past 50s.

I spent one day restoring Patty's computer. She clicked on an email she had sent that could not be delivered and was returned. She was curious as to why it wasn't delivered and clicked on the notice. Well, it was a "worm" that locked her computer and wouldn't let her do anything. When I got up the next day, she came out in her PJs and said, "My computer won't come on."

I had to reformat the hard drive and return it to the factory, new, condition. She lost everything on the computer. I feel sorry for her as it takes a lot of time to put her things back on the computer that she had saved on an external hard drive. Beware folks. If you send an email and it comes back, you should not open it.

I have not been able to get around much of late.
