But now the temperature has shifted and clouds have rolled in. The forecast calls for much needed rain and our fingers are crossed that lightning won’t follow. It is sooo dry here that an active storm is simply not what we need.

I’m hoping for a hike this evening but who knows, we may get a dollop of snow. Hey, it’s been known to happen, even in April.

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.
