OT 030 – Bumble the Blue Sky

I read an article once arguing that cameras are inherently racist. While I won’t speak to that, it sure is hard to get the center of the sunflower to pop without blowing out the sky and the petals. That said, it’s a pretty iconic shot for Summer at this place. The bumble is a Brown-belted.

Bee 074 – How ’bout a Bumble on a Sunflower…again?

Love the reds in this sunflower. Betting it’s about an 8th-generation bee creation. Their own, personally-made hybrid. Seem to be losing the red as time goes by. Might have to re-seed the pool and get that back a little.

One of my favorite things about sunflowers in our yard is that they wander. Can’t wait to see where a new patch shows up this year.
