Dinnertime: Bee Treats | 04-15-16

IMG_9817

Several weeks ago I discovered the “Honeysuckle Tree,” a native tree that grows wild around Havana, Florida, and is a member of the azalea family. (Yes, those stamens sure do look like azaleas, don’t they?!?) While I was snapping photos of this beautiful, unusual tree, a bee flew in, buzzing about, seeming quite excited about dinnertime.

Mmmmm, tasty treats,” says the Bee.

There’s a slice of heaven in my own backyard, and what better representation of landscape could I use than my own? The old Oak trees with the Spanish moss, the Magnolia trees, everything I need is right where I am. Nature! Don’t you love it, too?

Sometimes the sun casts its magical rays and I’m one lucky photographer to capture her reflections in my pictures. In this case, when I photographed these antique cordial glasses, the setting sun cast its reflections on the glass, resulting in a perfect example of vibrant.

The delicate patterned wings, the vibrant multi-colored body, the teeny furry hairs of the dragonfly, all say “intricate” to me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

This building in San Antonio, Texas, looks like an optical illusion when viewed directly in front, the building seems to converge with the sky. But it’s just a facade – the photograph below shows the true architecture.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

silhouette

A silhouette of my then 11-year old son, Ian, standing next to the entrance to the Museo Del Oro Precolomeino in San Jose, Costa Rica. This country’s museum has the largest collection of pre-Columbian gold artifacts. This was a most interesting place to visit, you would just not believe the craftsmanship – back in the days when there were no tools, only handmade ones. Some pieces were quite tiny, and others were huge. My son had no idea how much these priceless antiquities are worth. I literally had my jaw drop at the beauty. WOW.

The water in this fountain at the Spanish Governor’s Palace in San Antonio, Texas, has such an abstract look because of the reflections and fluidity in the water.
