This weekend was so beautiful I had no choice but to go outside and play with my camera. Nothing like documenting plants in all their flamboyant reproductive glory!
OBSCENE, isn't it?
And then they've got all these bees up in their business:

Soon I'd become obsessed with photographing bees. This was only made possible with the help of my zoom lens, because bees make me scream like a little girl.
Nothing like being wayyy zoomed in on a little bee, and then having it fly STRAIGHT TOWARDS YOUR FACE and shrieking like a seventh-grader on helium and almost dropping the camera and startling an old couple walking by hand-in-hand.
(Although this artsy abstract shot came from one of those instances:)
mouse-eye-view photo just for good measure:
And since it's started pouring rain in the time it took me to load these photos, looks that will have to do for now. Oh, Oregon.
