In the garden: Pollinators at last!

At least pollinators that are slow-moving enough for me to capture them.

Sadly, the bumble bee is in shadow. I'll have to work on that! But at least they exist! Here's another:

Trying to photograph flowers, or, rather, pollination systems, I rediscover over and over again how flowers are adapted to catch the slightest motion of the wind....

As this peony is! Frankly, I've always considered peonies a little frowzy, but on the other hand, I like to photograph the rich hues of decay, and it looks like I'll get plenty of opportunities here. I think I should plant some more for next year, maybe not white.

I'm having fun with those peonies. And so were ants!
