...As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.. Psalm 104: 3
The sun was was still shining brightly at 6:00 PM tonight. I used the umbrella for the purpose of shading, but there are still sections of this picture that are over exposed. The only reason why I didn't delete this image is because of the unexpected bee that joined me which I thought added interest..
It actually looks like I am shading the bee on the Zinnia with my umbrella.... .I thought I heard buzzing when I knelt for this self portrait but since I didn't move or act alarmed, the sweet little bee kept on pollinating the Zinnia behind my shoulder.. and I didn't get stung. Maybe it was the same bee that I shot yesterday resting underneath the Hollyhock.
Who we are among,
Could be a friend
To join us in the light,
We might also get stung
As we take nervous flight...
Right after the camera
Records our painful grin...
This little bee on the Zinnia
Did not abuse his powers,
But kept on working after hours.
Poetry by me, AJP
