Just a quick post today to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about you all. I mean, I almost forgot about you all. But I kind of just barely remembered you when I was grabbing a cup of coffee. So in some respects I *did* forget about you all, just… not permanently. But don’t worry! I still love you all! As much as I ever loved you all. Which I guess means that I still … umm … don’t actively dislike you all. Umm… here’s a spider.

Let’s go with this one today. It’s (yet another) bee with (yet another) flower. But it’s Wednesday, and this makes me 3 for 3. I think these are lavender flowers or something? Hmm, whatever, not important. They’re nice enough to look at.

Don’t worry, I’ll inundate you guys soon with a bunch of Hawaii pictures, it’s definitely coming. In the meantime though, I’m just going to toss out a few more shots from the archive. Like this one. And no, this one isn’t from this year. I haven’t yet started going outside to take bug pictures this year, I think it’s still a bit too cold for them (the bugs, not the pictures), and besides, the flowers haven’t really started blooming yet. (Although some of the trees have…)

Obviously, I used a flash in this picture. The fact that it’s so obvious is actually one thing I don’t really like about it. The bee’s “skin” was just too reflective, so I got that crazy shine. I mean, in some ways it’s neat, because you can really see all the little grains of pollen stuck to his head, but using artificial light like that almost feels like cheating. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll get over it.

In other news, I believe the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival has started. Meaning, I’m pretty sure it officially goes from basically the beginning of to the end of April. I haven’t actually put any effort in to see if any tulips are actually blooming yet (although there are some daffodils blooming locally, so those are probably in full effect up there), but it’s probably time to start looking for a nice weekend day to head up there. If you’re a photographer, and you’re at least somewhat in the area (BC counts!) it’s totally worth checking out, you can have a lot of fun playing around with lots of different theme ideas. I’m tentatively planning on making it up there sooner or later, so maybe I’ll see you up there?
