This one became interesting like I never thought it could. He he and here is how it all started.
Started out looking for some shots to post. Close ups and or Macros. With the theme being shapes in your garden. Ok this is a fun one in my mind. So off I went looking for shapes.
Come on now, how hard can this be? Something is always shaping up around this house. Just have to get out and look for them right?
Even just the lights that I can't stop the robins from building their nest on, still it has shape.
Pretty normal walk about till now. As I was walking to the back yard with shapes in mind, I saw some really small shapes Where they where not the day before.
The house keepers were all out in front of our hive. You can see them all over the ground in front fanning their wings, trying to bring a queen bee back.
You see last week a great Friend of mine came over to check on the health of our hive. Well once we got it opened up, we found that half of the hive had left along with the queen bee. It is called a swarm. When the bee hive gets too full, some or half will leave with the queen to find another less crowded place. I was a bit bummed then. But now seeing these house keepers out here doing this, just seemed strange. So I went a little closer. Then I heard it. Really loud too. I started seeing lots of little shapes in the air. LOTS!
Now being of sound mind, I decided this was not going to bee a macro shot for me. I didn't think I would like the outcome of getting up close to these shapes. So the last shot is as close as I am getting. 5 feet is my limit with out the suit.LOL Funny how some things can really shape up our days, when we least expect it.
Ok now feeling a little bit safer, I went out and got that close up. SO keeping with the theme. He he
