Flowers with Bugs

I’d been photography flowers for years, never knowing how they’d turn out until the film was developed. When I got my first digital camera, a whole new world opened up because I was no longer wasting anything trying to get the best shot. One day I noticed I’d caught a bug in the photo and that sort of became a new ‘thing’ to try for. These are a few of my best …

Two for one


Wow, some great shots!

Beautiful! Since we both like doing the spelling bee puzzle, you should submit some of these to them!

I’ve thought about it but not brave enough I guess.

Just do it! You would not lose anything! I am sure they get a lot of photos, but it is a daily puzzle!

Your compositions and colors are fabulous!

Okay, I did it, I submitted the sunflower photo.


Now I will be playing each morning with extra excitement because maybe I will see your picture again!

Just keep taking them…they would make lovely notecards and even a fabulous display together with some of your other pictures! Birds and bees…lol.

Ooh, I love that bzzz coming in for a cosmo landing!

Tell me more!

NYtimes puts out daily puzzles that include a mini crossword, regular crossword, Wordle, Vertex, Tiles, Spelling Bee and a few more. I get it as a paid subscription to the NYTimes.

Spelling Bee is where they give you 7 letters with a center letter that must be used in all the words. You try to make as many words as you can with those 7 letters, minimum of 4 letters. They tell you how many words there are possible. If you get them all, you are a Queen Bee! I have been on a streak and have been Queen Bee for 4 months in a row now!

It is part of my morning coffee routine to do all the puzzles.

They include a photo submitted by the public that has a bee in it…they have all been lovely!


That is so cool. I love it!
