Backyard Safari

The temperature rose quickly this morning.
I was wondering if any bugs had emerged.



The Bumble Bee was waiting for me.
He seemed to beckon me to follow him.
I grabbed my hat.
I was going on a Backyard Safari with a Bumble Bee guide.


Mr. Bumbles would know about the bugs.
He could lead me to where they were.
I changed the lens of the camera;
close ups of bugs was my goal.

All he knew about were the other bees.
Hundreds of Honey Bees were in the gardens.
The back Dogwood was filled with tiny bees.


All over the yard bees covered the grape hyacinths.
These are two different types of bees.
I need a bee field guide.

Dear Chris,
I am very pleased that I can capture some of what I see in the backyard! If my husband says, "great shot" when he sees the days slideshow I think, "Yes!"
When you take the time to share your thoughts on a series of photos I am ever so pleased!
It gives me the encouragement to keep on!
