Another Up Close Look At The Beauty Of Spring.
I have been noticing fewer and fewer bees and other insects for a few years now and this year walked for two days and didn’t see a single bee. Thankfully, yesterday I finally saw a few buzzing about the beautiful rhododendron flowers gathering the first pollen of the year to feed their hive.
I found some tiny blueberries or, as we call them around here huckleberries, just starting to develop. i learned, from photographing them up close, that the seeds form first and the fleshy fruit we eat grows around them. Very interesting.
I did see my first dragonfly on one of my walks but wasn’t able to get a photograph. There should be a lot more of them with the onset of the warm and humid weather. I also saw a few moths and butterflies hovering about the flowers in the fields and woods.
There are so many objects to photograph in the woods, gardens and fields near my house that I could spend days just roaming them with my macro lens. But then I wouldn’t get to see, photograph and share the many beautiful landscapes and wildlife that inhabits them.
I do know this for certain, I will never be bored in the Spring, Summer or Fall here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Here is a link to some more photographs I took on my hikes with my macro lens. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-page-2/nggallery/photographs-page-two-blog/macro-flowers-and-insects-may-25-26-2016
