Busy as a Bee

Busy as a Bee


'Bees make honey, men make money,' my mother used to say.
Sometimes we get so caught up in making money, in spending it,
or wishing that we had more of it it, that we forget that the really
important things often don't cost at lot. Once we have enough money to feed
and clothe ourselves, educate our children, pay our mortgage,
and buy camera gear, then there's no guarantee that more money
would bring greater happiness.
Friendship doesn't cost anything except
time and an open heart and the beauty of nature doesn't cost anything
except an eye to see it.

I totally agree with you, Mairead!! Add a bunch of books (second hand is fine) and I'm content! This is such a wonderful photo with all the detail and textures. VV

Just add Pbase fees to the budget & you've got the lot :) Love the way it's mowing down the pollen!! A very good shot, Mairead.

Terrific details. Very well done.
I couldn't agree more with what you have written. I could only add that it wouldn't matter how much you spent on your camera gear, it would bring you no more satisfaction if the process wasn't somehow very important to you. This is true even if the results are not always that good ....
