I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather today, so I took my camera out into the yard.
The garden is spare but it does have some flowers growing:
The flatleaf parsley is nearly growing wild, and most of the stalks have flower heads now.
A variety of insects can be found on them – more than I think I’ve ever seen on any given type of plant!
I think there were at least six different insects flying around them, buzzing from flower head to flower head. Parsley nectar must taste very good!
And to finish off, a common weed here that I think is known as foxtail, for obvious reasons!
I also experimented with an idea that I had, though I’m sure I’m not the first to mess around with the ISO and f-stops. The results were promising, but the focus was off, so I’d rather not share the ones from today. I’ll have to try again!
