Focus: WP Photo Challenge

I’ve always been fascinated with the determination and focus that bees have. They spend their lives collecting pollen from the flowers in their area…even the ones that are too small to hold their weight!

I’m still not sure which photo I like best. The cropped photo, focusing on the bee or the one with the out-of-focus background. (taken with Asus Zenphone 3 Laser phone)

From the Narrow Gap~ WP Challange

Last spring we were thrilled to share the rooms above their home. Each afternoon (when it wasn’t pouring rain) we happily watched to see who was the bravest; who would come out the narrow gap under our cabin to play in the tender grass.

They were a busy little crew. It was a daily debate; some said there were 9 siblings other said 7 siblings, two of which were extra feisty and running everywhere. We never saw their parents at this time. We only saw them occasionally later in the afternoon. We suspected that the crew were sneeking out when Mom and Dad went for dinner. 🙂

It’s hard to say but this crew peeking out of the narrow gap may have been the highlight of our trip to Allegany State Park, New York.
