This morning we took a nice walk. After last night’s rain the air was cool, the sky was hazy, and water droplets clung to the the flowers and plants I photographed.

I have been trying all summer to get a good shot of a bee, but when viewing the photos on the computer there’s always some blur. Why can’t those bees just stay completely still for me? Is it really too much to ask?

I’ve set the self-timer on my camera for 2 seconds, so I used it in order to reduce camera shake.

What I got here was a little more than I asked for. Yes, the bee is present (and reasonably clear), but he’s sharing those flowers with a pack of June bugs. June bugs are irritating little beetles. You may know them by their scientific name: Death to Crape-Myrtles.
