I love taking photos in the bit of garden at the front of our house – the background colouring always come up amazing. Often, it gets cropped out. Thought I would share two versions of each image today.

I took this photo yesterday with the Nikon D3000. It could have been fantastic, but was enough to thrill me when I uploaded from the camera.

Thanks for you kind comments on my last post. My laptop went to sleep just as I finished clicking the likes. Here is another honey bee. I adore the ones with the big orange honey bags. Well, I can’t seem to think of those pollen baskets as anything else but honey bags.

I’m still sharing photos from our camping trip, earlier in the month.

The Welcome Swallows gave us a lot of entertainment with their antics. Many times during the course of the day, they would speed over the river and swirl among the trees, ducking and diving to avoid each other and the trees. I gave up trying to capture the action, but did manage to catch them resting on fallen timber.

I loved how their metallic black heads flashed blue in the sunlight. Towards the end of our stay, they took to skimming over our camp like we weren’t even there.

At home, the migrating butterflies are starting to arrive. I’m hoping for lots of different ones, like last year. The big tree outside the kitchen door has started flowering and is attracting more bees each day.  The butterflies loved it.

Thanks for looking.
