We don’t seem to have many birds in our yard right now. The hummingbirds are gone, and there are just ravens and some little mystery birds flitting here and there. But we do have bees and wasps. . .




I desaturated this photo, because I didn’t find the colors pleasing, and then added a bit of split toning in Lightroom.  Because it is Tuesday, I added one of Kim Klassen’s textures, 1301 (a favorite of mine), which I also desaturated.  If you go to, you will find links to some beautiful images using her textures.

  2. I love these macro shots! So much detail in the bee. Very nice. About all that’s left in our area are the yellow jacket wasps, and we must guard our drinks outside since there’s not much other nectar for them! Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving such a nice comment. I really appreciate it.
