Once or twice each summer, I get the urge to try for some good shots of bees in flight. It's usually so bright outside that I don't like my results. Today was cloudy, so I figured I'd give it a go.

It was a little too cloudy. I'm still not happy. Maybe I'll try again at sunrise or sunset sometime. Now that we're passing the longest day of the year, sunrise and sunset will soon be more attainable.

Thank goodness the solstice is here. Even though we still have three months of potentially hot weather to go here in the NW, we're on the downward swing toward fall. As I keep telling my kids, we're already halfway to winter! Happy dance! If I could have 4 months of winter, 3 months of spring and fall, and one month of summer, I'd be a happy girl.
