“Whilst August yet wears her golden crown,
Ripening fields lush- bright with promise;
Summer waxes long, then wanes, quietly passing
Her fading green glory on to riotous Autumn.”

~ Michelle L. Thieme, August’s Crown

  1. Pure magic, Susan!
    Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
    We’ll be moving my son into his new apartment in Boston.
    Going to be a looooooong weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you Lisa! Yes, that’s us too…only we will be heading west! Hope it all goes smoothly for you…we will need a vacation after this!

    • Thank you so much! Patience is the key…you will get that shot I’m sure! I hadn’t really given thought to a photo bucket list…but that’s pretty intriguing, so I’m off to check out yours! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. These are beautiful, Susan. You got the depth of field just right and the focus is great. I enjoyed scrolling through them.

  3. I love these – what an effect, all that goldenrod behind the bee, creating a yellow universe. And again, lovely light happening here! That tiny patch of sky behind the wing in the 2nd photo adds such depth, it makes it a very uplifting image somehow.

    • You are so nice, thank you so much. I took these in a field that was full of goldenrod…and hundreds of bees. The buzzing was ridiculously loud!
