Haha. I did imagine that a 29 year old riding a bicycle with a baby was definitely not cool in their view.

Funnily enough when we went to the other side of the tree the rays disappeared.

Just like an optical illusion.

Wild, right?! It's called a passion flower, I think. They grow a lot as vines on fences around here in Florida.

I love the Passion Flower vines.
I have one in my back yard that is a different color with predominate white & purple colors.
I have also seen red ones.
The bees seem to love them.
I occasionally capture a shot of a bee or two on them.
Wish I had a sharper lens to get better clarity & sharpness in pics.
Any economical camera recommendations in $200 range good for macro shots?
Macro shots are great fun for me.

In the spring the bees liked the Red Maple tree blooms & the broccoli plant blooms.

I must have taken 120 shots or more on that Red Maple to get a couple of shots of bees in mid flight.
Got to definitely have some patience for some shots.

Man I have to take a trip tomorrow morning to the nursery & find me one of those vines! Nice bee shots, my approach is shoot first, choose later. I prefer not to edit or crop so I just take tons of shots and sort through them. I'm using a Canon ELPH 300 HS as my point & shoot, but prefer my older Sony Cybershot for macro. I mainly just use my phone though. Lazy FTW

Disclosure: I had nothing to do with these pics. But if you like nice photos, take a look at these samples from the Nat'l Geographic photo contest. 50 absolutely amazing images. #50 even features a bike!

Thank you mkeller234.

I really am fascinated my the 'small world' out there & even just in my own back yard.

Hopefully one day I can get a camera / lens with better macro capabilities.
Regards.

Time to go out to play. By the time I got back to this point, I'd logged 45 miles.

The papaya trees I planted this spring are over 7' tall now!

Aquired some new stuff this weekend.
A tattoo (it's a squid with a laser on its head, deep man)

And something to keep the mac-n-cheese warm:
