How do you catch so many? What's in there to attract them?
It's a great hobby, Terri. And you will find that the wide angle can be amazingly useful for flower shots.I wanted to experiment with my 14-30 f4 to see how close I could get to a subject. I was only a few inches away from this closest black-eyed susan in this shot this morning. I've seen some interesting shots of close up flowers in mountain scenes with a wide angle and hope to try it out soon.
For me growing flowers is what I do in a typical (and not so typical) summer.

That's an invitation. Coming back from a hot day in the office (250 yrs old building, no air conditioning of course), it's time to cool down in the pool we set up. The children and my wife were in there most of the afternoon, and had friends that joined them.
When I came back, the air was still around 30 °C / 85 Fahrenheit, and I wanted to go in. Mayla heard that - in she was! Double the fun when dad joins
Nothing like having the ocean, the family, and a beer can opener you cannot lose, Roland. Looks like you are all set!What's summer then, for me?
Hang on a bench.
Get out my old flip flops.
The ones with the beer opener built in.
And then use these for what they're intended to...
