SHUTTERBUGS

We had a nice spell of weather the first part of the month. Too nice, really, but what the heck. Caught this little lady on an Oregon Grape. There was a bumble bee too, that morning. But, by the time it lit in the vinca long enough to shoot, it landed backside up. You can see a yellow stripe and that's about all.

I love pansies. Especially the ones that have "faces." When the plants are small in the spring they remind me of little kids looking up at you. Ok, I have an overactive imagination-so sue me.

This was one of the first of the big purple safron type crocuses. I love the contrast of the purple flower and the intense color in the center. Very dramatic. I have a roll almost shot out that has some red mini tulips on it. With luck they'll turn out.

I love working with the 35mm film but........lost a roll out of the last batch. The whole roll was overexposed. I suspect that yours truly didn't get the back of the camera shut all the way. That's a first. Just goes to show you what happens when you get too busy bird watching and don't pay attention to the little things. LOL

If that's the worst thing that happens to me this year I'm not going to sweat it.

That ruined rolll could have been "cooked," like if you left it in the car and it got too hot or something.  

By golly we got over that "nice spell of weather," didn't we?  Yikes!  Lisa  :-
