I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

Amazing photos of the bee! My kids even approve. They thought they were neat… and as always I love the afternoon light used in the daisy photos.

Bees always look so fluffy up close. These are great!

I KNOW! I want to pet them and then I realize that’s probably not the smartest idea lol!

Just beautiful. I wish I knew more about this. Macro, I think it is called?

Thank you! The shots of the bumblebee were indeed shot with a macro (close up) lens!

I think I like the last one the best, but nice series.

Thank you!

Absolutely lovely in every way. Love the bee shots. What flower are they on? Catnip? Mint? White lavender? So gorgeous

Thank you! White lavender!!

Beautiful, I am always amazed by the beauty of a honey bee’s wings.

Thank you!!

I love the detail in the bee’s wings on the second one. The last two are beautiful as well!

Thank you so much! I was lucky that the bee wasn’t really flying around much so I was able to get my focus pretty much nailed.
