Regular Random – Five Minutes with Buttons

Desley Jane hosts Regular Random each week and you can find her here: https://musingsofafrequentflyingscientist.com/2017/08/05/five-minutes-with-a-ranunculus-regularrandom/

The rules are to pick a subject and spend five minutes with it using different lighting, views and angles, etc.

I bought these cute buttons for a project a couple of years ago and came across them the other day and thought it would be a colorful entry.

Photo Challenge – Satisfaction

This week we are asked to share a photo of something that brings us satisfaction.

Nothing makes me happier, more excited or more satisfied than a bee capture.  Their little “bee hinds” look so cute as they burrow into the flower to get every last taste of pollen.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Color

Here are the rules:

Pick an item or scene and photograph it for five minutes using different angles and light.

I do not have a green thumb so I can’t believe that I actually went out and bought several plants for my back porch.  But I’d love to get more bee and butterfly captures so hubby and I went off to the garden store.

Orange Coneflower 2

I’ve fallen in love with coneflowers – I think their umbrella shape is beautiful.  I also bought trailing verbena, dianthus and lantana.

So here’s hoping that the bees and butterflies will find their way to my door – and that my new plants survive the summer under my care.
