Summertime! It was a cold winter. I really don’t mind sweating this year.
Mother Nature at work.
We all have our jobs.

Sunflowers & bees. Mother Nature at work.
Several years ago I was on assignment shooting flowers for a calendar. When I spotted the daisy with the ladybug I didn’t have my camera in hand. I was working on another project at the moment, but I quickly realized the value of this photograph. My problem – I’d have to quickly head back to my office, retrieve the necessary equipment – a 50mm macro lens – and return before the ladybug flew away. How lucky was I going to be? It was at least a 15 minute return trip. Well, I guess I was. I made the trip, set up the shot, even bending the flower stem for an improved angle and the ladybug never flew away. If only I were that lucky all the time.
Why are they called “ladybugs”? Who knows out there in cyberspace?
This sunday the clocks jump ahead one hour. It’s almost Springtime! I am sick of this winter.
