Bee’s point of view

Close-up of a honey bee on a sunflower. Another bee, on the edge of the photo, is flying in to join it.
I wonder what the bee sees.

Seeing things in black and white

Sometimes it is interesting to take a look at a picture without color to see what grabs your eye. I’m continuing my exploration of black and white. Never thought something that sounds so simple could be so complicated.

With color removed, a black and white of the image above allows the textures to really shine.

Does the black and white change your perspective of the photo?

Spring in the woods

Tiny bugs are busy on this flower.
The berry is just starting to form at the center of this one.

The salmon berry is unusual in that it has a bright pink flower. Seems like most other berries have white or pale pink ones. The color of the berries is usually orange, but can be on the red side if they get sun (since it tends to grow in dense woods that is an anomaly). It’s called “salmon berry” because the orange berries look like a cluster of salmon roe. It is kind of watery and doesn’t have a strong flavor, either sweet or tart, compared with thimble-berries, huckleberries or blackberries.
