Summer Flower Gardens

With the peak of summer upon us, I needed to photograph some of the summer flowers, butterflies, and birds in the gardens around our house.  But first, I’ll start with this cardinal that I heard singing in the top of a pine tree.  He is the reason I got the camera out in the first place.

I chased this bee all across the flower garden trying to capture it on a flower.  It kept landing on a blossom that was hidden from me.  I finally caught it in flight headed for the hostas.

I hope you see some flowers in a garden this week.  If you do, please take the time to enjoy them.
