Took these shots at Houghton’s Pond, Milton MA. These guys were taking a dip and cleaning themselves but it kind of looked like they are on a swimming race.
One of the things that fascinate me during the spring and summer time is how much work some of these animals do to gather food to keep them going during the winter. I read somewhere that a honeybee has to visit approximately 2 million flowers to gather just 1 pound of honey. They are just always on the go and no time to relax. It is just mind boggling. All the more reason why I never feel enough of the honey bee pictures.
I got this shot during our trip to Bar Harbor in the summer. I was lucky to have my 75 – 300mm at that time on so was easy to get a close shot.
The moment I saw this subject line for the weekly photo challenge, my first choice was to pick up a photo my beach collection. But since many others may have similar ones, I chose this. I took several pics from top of The Empire State Building, NYC and stitched them into a single panoramic view. You can see how the sky meets the earth. “Click on the picture for better clarity”
