I was up on the roof of our office building yesterday (Friday) taking practice shots for a company photo on Tuesday. This just caught my eye.
Poppies are in full bloom in the yard these days. I think I can make a drug out of these plants.....hmm.
Stopped at the pond by the house because I thought I saw that dang beaver. Instead, I got a photo of a dragon fly. Not sure if I told you, but I had the beaver in my sights last weekend. I was about 20 feet from him in the kayak. He came out of his den and didn't notice me....I had been waiting about 20 mins. As soon as I was about to take the photo, my cell phone started ringing and spooked him under the water. Thanks Mary!
No time to shoot these days. Just too much going on. Took this one morning from the car while stopped at a light about a block from the office. Nice days in Cambridge lately.
Those signs you see from everywhere that say "Stop and Look, Motorcycles are Everywhere" really annoy me. A lot of the motorcycle clubs put them up on streets and in their yards. But then you have yahoos like this idiot who is trying his best to make the Darwin Awards List. I see 2-3 bikers everyday doing this on the way into work....zipping and weaving down the centerline, between lanes, at 15-20 mph FASTER than the moving traffic. Just can't say enough about how diluted our gene pool has become.

Becky, our neighbor, opened her hive up today. She said there were over 40,000 bees in there. I was able to get in real close with no problem. The top photo is of Becky pulling out one of the honeycomb slats that is filled with honey and drone larvae. In the lower photo, she is pointing to the Queen, which has the white dot on it. The dot is painted on so she is easy to find. It was amazing to watch all the bees working and how much honey they produced in just the past few weeks.
