During the summer months there are a lot of bees out there, but look closely- some of these bees are tiny  (6mm 1/4″ long).

Bonnie, my web master showed me how to crop and enlarge with Adobe.  :)

I have been having a lot of trouble with focusing on these small bees.  I am using Fujifilm EXR camera.  Yesterday I was playing around with focusing on some text.  I pressed the shutter down half-way, and the camera focused to 2″ away from the subject.  Amazing.  Then I released the shutter- and it focused back to the default.  I did not realize that I should continue pressing the shutter to take the focused picture. I thought it would hold the focus until I partially depressed the shutter again.  But not so.  So now with renewed knowlege, I will see what I can find in the garden today.

Since I expected another sunny day today.  I made sure my flowers were well watered, so they could make nectar for any visiting bee.
