There were a few bumble bees feasting on the hundreds of these flowers I saw today at a local wildflower prairie, but they retreated when I approached. Usually bumble bees are good photo models. Maybe they were overcome by the bad hair blooms of bee balm.

Here’s another shot of the wildflowers nestled into the pond at Kendrick Woods. I wish I was savvy with video so I could convey more of the peacefulness of this place. I took a super short video of the pond with my phone that includes some of the birdsong I heard this morning:

Beautiful Day

I had a peaceful morning stroll through part of Kendrick Woods located in Allen County, Ohio. There was a pond that had an island with wildflowers.

Summer Photo Walk, June 11

I had high hopes for this morning’s photo walk, but the heat and wind spoiled the venture a bit. The band of temperatures that feel comfortable to me is tightening with each passing year. I’m afraid that by the time I am 50 just one temperature will suit me, likely 60 degrees.
