My oldest son lives in Quincy, MA, which is just south of Boston. Not far from where he lives is a recreation area that includes Houghton Pond. There is a small slough (wetlands area) that feeds the pond. It is the home of many critters and flowers, including these. 1. In the web. A single duck fearther suspended in a spider's web. 2. Bumblebee rumble. This is the first bumblebee that I've seen in ages. Shot from about 15 feet or so with a 200 + 1.4 converter hand held. Which is why it's not so damn sharp. 3. A little purple maybe? 4. A stunningly crafted shot of a honey bee pollinating this flower. What's that? You can't see the bee? Open your ey... uh, never mind. Ahem. This is a stunningly crafted shot of a missing honey bee not pollinating this flower. I was so busy checking dof & whatnot that I didn't even notice the little bugger had flown the coop. It was a killer shot though. Really! 5. More purple weeds. Um... excuse me wildflowers.
