The Thursday Picture – Hanging Around Russian Ridge

1-DSC_0495

So, I’m hiking along the Bay Area Ridge Trail in the Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve enjoying the bazillions of wildflowers
blooming along the trail.

I must’ve taken several hundred pictures with my trusty Nikon D40. Remembering the advise from my friend Rich, I try to get as close as possible to my subject and “fill the frame.” When I was focusing on these small golden flowers, this honey bee zoomed right in and started to go to work.
Or, did the bee just want in my shot?

Where are you buzzing around this weekend?

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
