Summer seems to be passing quickly. The garden is doing well, flowers and veggies flourishing. I forget what kind of sunflowers I planted, but their leaves are fuzzy and dark green, and the flowers are 5″ to 8″ across.

I’m always trying to get the perfect bee photo. I have an ok camera, but it’s not a DSLR, so the quality’s not always as good as I’d like.

Honeybees are pretty easy to catch, but getting a good angle can be hard. Bumblebees hardly ever hold still, so they’re more of a challenge.

Sometimes there are other interesting creatures in the flowers as well.

And every once in while, like this morning, there’s something really cool.
