While inspecting my back yard for weeds, a low undulating hum permeated my ears and drew my eyes down to intersect with some flashes of movement in the raspberry patch. It appears that my six legged friends are working on ensuring an excellent crop this year. The timing was perfect as I have just constructed a new diffuser for my flash and wanted to try some close-up photography. The flowers, bees, flies and water droplets seemed happy to pose for some portraits.
