There are bees boxes in every orchard that I looked at yesterday and I spent quite a bit of time looking at orchards. I have something in common with bees - I can imagine the experience a bee has with the thousands and millions of blossoms. It is a good thing bees love to be busy.
Today's image is a Finalist in this month's Betterphoto (BP) contest. The contest has 6400 entries each month with just under 600 finalist photos. There are some remarkable winning images - here's the link to the contest results. There's an 'all time' contest underway there, and I've been getting notifications of pictures placing in the Staff Favourites, etc. So something to look forward to there.
Participants on Betterphoto are primarily U.S.-based. So there are mostly images from the United States - each day the scenes vary across the country, giving one the experience of a living travelogue. Redbubble, another photography site, originated in Australia, so there are many Australian members and we get to see their distinctive landscape. Right now we we move through Spring and they move through Autumn, so there's a contrasting experience in the seasons and landscape.
I think of Marshall McLuhan'a expression 'The Global Village' and realize this is it.
