Beauty

If you don't see beauty around you, look closer.  I took these on my walk around the neighborhood.

  2. Beautiful! I used to be terrified of bees. Eventually I started to come around to bumble bees, they are so cute and fuzzy! Yellow jackets though, they need to stay the fuck out. Great pics!

  5. These are really beautiful but it makes me think your neighborhood is full of bees. Like covered in terrifying bees!

  6. Great photos. Flies with their green almost metallic outer are always nice to watch as too are other insects with bright vivid colours.

  7. I think getting into photography has opened my eyes to all the beauty in the world. Things that I know for a fact I wouldn't have noticed years ago, I see so clearly now.

  11. Every morning on the way to work I drive by a field of sunflowers. All their heads are turned toward the east.

    Did you know they follow the sun?

    Of course on the drive home they are looking the opposite direction!

    So beautiful, so cool!

  12. Wow I can't believe you got such close ups and what amazing quality- it shows the beauty we don't see in every day life. The first picture is my favourite.

  15. I agree with Sara about the yellow jackets. And, somehow, you have made that fly look beautiful.
