Uprooted Magnolia

Bee to Sunflower

Posted in Nature, Photography, Wildlife by leahyetter on August 19, 2010

I pulled down the driveway and spotted our turkeys waddling across the dirt road. I turned the car off and they stopped to look me over. Slowly and quietly I grabbed my camera off the seat and stepped out. They waddled off so I focused on a sunflower patch to get my exposure set. I followed the camera shy turkeys and photographed them until they disappeared over the hill. It wasn’t until I put my card into the computer that I found I had captured a bee on his way to pollinate this sunflower.

I love it when accidental images happen. As you can see, I’ve experimented with different filters in Photoshop. I fell in love with some framed Giclee photographic prints in a gallery in Martha’s Vineyard.  It got my creative juices flowing.

P.S. None of the turkey portraits turned out.
