I was Milking Matilda and I turned my head and something about the way my new couple bales of hay looked caught my eye...I hollered to Mary who was playing with her chick and asked her if she'd get me the camera. I took the picture using a lot of different settings. I think they came out nicely but they are dark (it was late in the evening as I was milking).
I did some with flashes because of how dark the others were but I really don't like the look the flash gives to pictures
The babies were watching me through their stall door (you can see one of them in the middle dark one) and wanted attention so I messed around with my camera some more and took some pictures of them through the wire.
LOOK AT THAT! I painted my milking stand bright green-yellow and insects and bugs like it because of the color, This bumble bee alighted on it while Larissa and I were at the Farmer's museum. It was holding a dead beetle with what looked like a thorn coming out of it's mouth area. I'd never seen any thing like it. The bee kept flying away and coming back all the time holding this beetle, I for one had no idea that bees ate beetles! I held the bumble bee many time (I do that a lot with my fuzzy friends and they usually fly right off) and he didn't seem to care, he would just stand on me not seeming to notice that he was in my hand. He was the weirdest bumble bee I've ever seen. I think I got pretty good pictures of it too.
