The Fog

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” ~Oscar Wilde~ (and The Pretenders)

It is so hot and humid that when I take my camera outside the lens fogs.  I was so glad to see the hummingbird moth that I forgot to check it before I took a picture.  It usually only visits the bee balm when I don’t have my camera with me. :^(   So this would have been a good picture with the moth and the bumble bee, but it’s foggy.  I think it has it’s own unique appeal though.  What do you think?

I did get a better picture when I cleaned the lens with my shirt.  (I be all of you real photographers are cringing right now.)

Of course the dragonflies are busy with the mosquitoes in my garden.  Thank you dragonflies!

Blurry Bee!

Yes, I know the bumble bee is blurry, but the bee balm came out okay!  “Always look on the bright side of life…”    It’s stuck in your head now, isn’t it?   : )
