    Yeah, the smoke is even reaching me, although we get a clearing sea breeze. Poor people in the middle of it !

    Yeah, I hate stink bugs too

    Nice to wander around the garden isn't it..
    Plenty of Spiders, Tiny Blue Butterflies and smoke around here to Dazz, not many Bugs the last few days though.

    I shoot with Canon and Olympus Cameras.. And My iPhone SE
    And sometimes a Little Old Panasonic DMC-TZ7

    Got me out of the house, it did. The hoards are descending later - well just immediate family, for a BBQ, so I got out of the kitchen, so to speak, while I could.

    How good is the bee in flight?! I spent ages trying (and failing) to capture one in a bush of hundreds recently, and you effortlessly capture this, lol. I guess it pays sometimes to actually be good at photography.

    Oakley recently posted a pic of the one in your last shot and I too have one in my pile of photos from Vietnam, which I’ll get to hopefully by the end of 2020. But he’s been a popular little butterfly.

    Don't forget I haven't posted all the missed shots that I thought were good at the time

    Thanks for looking in
