One Word A Week Wednesday...

21/52
Solitude
***
The happiest of all lives
is a busy solitude.

We are thrilled to see so many bumblebees in the garden! They seemed to arrive even earlier this Spring and sitting outside on the patio I can hear them buzzing as they weave in and out of the vines behind me. When I thought of today's "word" I thought of the bumblebee living in "busy" solitude :-)

I admired this on Flickr and now I get to admire it again! Your nature shots are gorgeous ... you must have a lot of patience to capture them. Can I ask what camera and lens you're using? I'm in the market for a macro lens.

It's been really nice seeing all the bees and butterflies this spring!

xo,
Lynda

Thank you Lynda, Darlene, Julie Marie & Dar...
Lynda - I use a Nikon D50 which is actually my son's ... we bought it for him 4 or 5 years ago as a birthday gift - I really must get my own :-}
The macro lens (which I absolutely adore) was a birthday present from my husband - it's a Tamron 1:1 90 mm - because of a neck/nerve pain issue I have, the Nikon lenses were too heavy - the Tamron, while heavy is about half the weight. I'm having lots of fun learning & would love to get PhotoShop next so I can apply textures to my photos. Happy lens shopping ♥
Dar- I wish I could take the credit for all the work being done but have to give that to my hubby and sweet daughter who have done all the pond/pots & planting ... I DID however, take the bumble bee photo :-) xo
