Photographing Bees

Posted by mrssmythe on July 18, 2017 in Critters, Garden, iPhone photography |

I’m finding that the best time to photograph bees is right after the rain. The bees are out, but they move much more slowly. They don’t seem to mind you sneaking up to take their pictures. They are, however, a bit bedraggled. Whenever I see this, I want to comb their “hair” for them. I […]

Posted by mrssmythe on July 12, 2017 in Critters |

I often get requests for photos/posts about the cats – specifically Mr. Wa. And, while I’d like to oblige, this can be hard because Mr. Wa doesn’t do a lot. In fact, until recently, we rarely saw him. He had a tendency to lurk in the basement most of the day, or up in the comfortable […]
