In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3: 6
I decided to continue on with my flowers series ...So far the regular flowers in our yard are taking their time to bloom and it may take awhile before I complete this series. At 8:00 tonight I did some practice shots with the flowering Black Locust Trees where all the big black bugs were crawling on the blossoms)...When I got in the house I discovered they were crawling all over me too. Yikes! A few times I got jabbed in the face with the sharp twigs when I was trying to hold them up so I could stand underneath in the time limit I gave myself of 10 seconds to get in the picture. This was not as easy as it looks ...I set the tripod on the driveway which stands higher than the level of the ditch bank.. where I stepped down into some tall weeds. I got
my exercise running up and down the ditch bank to try the best angle. We have had several
garter snakes that we've seen lately that like to slither around in tall weeds but fortunately didn't step on any otherwise the camera might have caught a much different expression.
