Sunday Stills: Birds and Bees

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was Birds and Bees.

I found some bees…

Bee in the air Flying near the Lupine.

Bee on the Centaurea Montana Blue

Then one evening after a rain I caught this one with his wings folded over whilst he was sucking the nectar out of a Centaurea montana ‘Blue’ ( A perennial Bachelors Button). 

Since we got leaves on the trees the birds in the yard are harder to photograph.

Canada Geese

I did manage a photograph of some Canada Geese with their babies.  They are such good parents.

Have a good week everyone!

Summer officially starts this next week and the days get shorter.  Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! :)

Sunday Stills: Yellow

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was yellow.  Now yellow is one of my favorite flower colors.  But other than dandelions..and a water lily about to bloom..yellow was scarce this week.


I tried to catch the triple reflection in the watery ripples..this was my best shot.

My Grandson was fishing.

His fishing rod was yellow.  I took this photo this afternoon, it was a cool day to be out on the lake:)

Sunday Stills: Potluck

Hello everyone!  I have really missed the Sunday Stills Challenges.  I am going to try harder to make time for them.  I am working almost full time, and my “fun” time is limited to late nights and early mornings.  Thanks goodness it is seasonal and come October 01 I will be footloose and fancy free again.  I accepted a position as Executive Director at a local Historical Museum.
