The bees were busy this day when I took this photograph of an artichoke blossom, with more than a couple of bees diving into the purple blossom. One has dipped itself, head first and others were moving in the thick petals.
I added multiple textures and blends to create the mottled background.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
