    Howdy Nikon people. Yes, it was a long holiday weekend, and across the nation, millions of grills were fired up. Including ours. Sausage, it was. Any primitive rituals happen in front of your camera? Share!

    I am as captivated (or more) by the details and transformation of flowers as they age and wither as when they are fresh and at their 'peak'. This is an older rose on one of our rose 'weeds' (I've tried for years to kill this by cutting it down to the ground but it won't die).

  24. It's hard to convey pictorially, but we have a Siberian maple tree that, when it blossoms, fills with honeybees. When you step outside, the entire tree is buzzing.

  25. the Korean lilac is also blooming, which bodes well for bug chasing. The butterflies and hummingbird moths have not found it yet, but the bees are getting in. It's not always easy to bag a bee, though.
