Sometimes it’s easy to see nature’s freeloaders while I’m snapping away at wildflowers.
As I get up close and personal with my Nikon 105mm macro lens, insects often come into focus along with the flora.
Other times the vagrant varmints show up as I work in Photoshop in the comfort of my home office. I wonder how I could’ve missed them while I was in the thick grass.
Not all of nature’s winks, though, are actually on flowers. Last Saturday as I was about to lean over to take a bluebonnet photo, something odd “hoppened” that was kinda “hare-owing” (somebody stop me!):
Quick as a bunny . . . because it was one . . . this critter near me shot out and scurried down the walking path. Got my heart to racing like Danica Patrick at Daytona.
Mental note: When it comes to nature photography, be careful of busy bees and rascally rabbits!
