Bees, Mushrooms and morning dew.

This morning we had free, due to the kids both being elsewhere last night, Jo wanted me to take a couple of photos of a mushroom just off the drive, so I thought I'd share them with you.

I love the detail of the underneath of mushrooms - they have incredible architecture!

Since I had my camera in my hands, I thought I'd see what else was out there this morning, and moved to the back garden to explore.

One of the first things that came to mind was the flowerbed by Zak's room, it has some beautiful colours and the flowers are wonderful.

It was while I was deciding which flower to take a shot of, that I noticed a solitary bee hovering from one flower to another, so I took a couple of shots.

The first shot was of a thistle, and the second shot was caught as it was collecting pollen from inside the flower itself.

The last shot I took this morning was of a spiderweb that was covered in the morning dew.

All I could think of when I saw it was, how you could imagine certain parts of it looking like jewelry.

What do you see?

Isn't it nice to have free moments when you can go and do what pleases you?

Nice photos! You've got the eye.

Cheers Carole, amazing what you can see when you really look at something!

Thanks Don, yes it's great to be able to take a step back for a while. I have a few other shots that I just HAVE to take - the list is growing every time I take a drive anywhere!

You are doing wonders with that camera, Stiggy!

It was great to have you visit the wedding post, yay! And thank you for all the nice things you said. :)

Thanks Ruth - I wish I could put more time into it rather than just taking a few snapshots here and there!

As far as your wedding post - i meant every word my dear!
