Might Be the Last of the Lavender

I was pretty surprised to see the lavender firing again yesterday. Waited around for a while (which is not my wont) for a bee and this really cute one showed up. Not great light – nor is it a great shot – but it is a pretty girl on some wonderful fall lavender. And that’s the point today. Getting wistful. Rained like mad the night before, finally. Enjoy!

The clouds were inconsistent so I had a lot of blasty light – and a lot of great light, too. This one is nicely backlit. And gorgeous. One of this series might make the calendar.
