Okay, so sometimes when I take pictures I don’t notice things until after I upload them to my computer. Like one day I took some pictures of a forsythia bush and when I enlarge them I noticed three large ants, each in their own bloom, having a snack.
It was misting all day today and everything was beautifully green and dewy and I thought it would be cool to take some close-ups of water droplets. So pretty, right?! Well check out what I discovered this time…
