We spent the last two days out at the coast celebrating our wedding anniversary. This morning found us walking through the town of Mendocino and later the Botanical Gardens. I was awestruck by the variety of shapes and colors of flowers which were in full bloom. The bumblebees were drawn to them in force and I spent a lot of time chasing them from bloom to bloom. Here is one photographed in mid takeoff from a blossom. There will be more flowers and ocean scenics to follow tomorrow. The dahlias were spectacular. God's love and blessings to all, chris Image created with a Canon 7D and a 100 mm macro lens. Camera Settings used AV mode, F5.0, 1/640 th of a sec.
