The bees are back!

I have seen the odd bee flying about on its own, recently. Today, I decided to photograph the wattle blooming in the lane near our house. I was thrilled to find it had bees in the blossoms. I’ve used the Nokia Lumia 520 Windows Phone, on auto.






I have sharpened and cropped and scaled for the web using IrfanView & GIMP and applied the frame masking with FastStone. Yeah, I over-fiddled!


I guess you will see only a few of them on a small screen!



Thanks for looking. Hope you are having a good weekend.  🙂


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Good that they are back. Don’t think they like me, I have been dead heading the camellia’s and I get very dirty looks from them. They don’t understand that if I get rid of the old blooms new ones will come up.

    1. LOL. There is a lovely camellia bush in my neighbour’s yard. My mum’s favourite flower. She is still waiting to move. Apparently the bloke who is renovating the unit she is moving to has taken ill. Poor mum, she has caught a cold this week. She promised to get a doctor to home visit if she gets worse than a sore throat.


      1. Poor thing, keep nagging at her to see the doctor. A lot of colds and even pneumonia going around at the moment, she doesn’t want to get pneumonia that means a likely hospital visit. Is she the only one there now? She has had a bit of bad luck
