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.
