The Light falls softly in the misty forest of my mountain. The redbud opened a few days ago in anticipation of the arrival of the Honeybees. And today they arrived ahead of rain. I’m overjoyed to see them because a few years ago I only had one and then after that there was a couple of years with no honeybees at all. She doesn’t seem to mind the camera as long as it doesn’t interfere with her work. She floats delicately through the mists grooming the flowers and then returning to them a few minutes later. Her legs are well packed with pollen and the bloom rewards her efforts by making the nectar sweeter. The visitation is a mark in my natural calendar. The bumblebees arrive first, then the Honeybees followed by the large Carpenter Bees and the tiny Mason Bees. And sometime this coming week or so the Hummingbirds are expected to return. The tiny Honeybee eventually decides that she’s done with this bush for now and vanishes into the mists headed for home as the rain begins to fall slowly. Which is also a sign for the photographer to get his equipment into a dry house and start the editing.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
