Earth Day Challenge.

The WordPress Earth Day photo challenge asks that I choose one photo, just one, that means ‘earth’ to me.

The one that immediately materialized in my mind’s eye was Mike Collins’ mind-blowing photograph. It’s here. Who could beat that? It makes my head spin with wonder.

This is mine:

  1. Nice! This is what I’m trying to achieve! Sharp and close photo of a bee or other insect in the flower :). I love it! Thanks for sharing!

    1. I’ve found that setting my camera to a high shutter speed works well for bees. Also, I think it’s easier in the evening when they slow down a little. I’m a total amateur, for every good shot there are 12 blurry ones! Keep going.

  2. Very appropriate considering we would not exist on this earth if it wasn’t for these amazing creatures. Beautiful photo.

  3. Great minds … when I saw that challenge I immediately thought of bees. Without them we have a mere four years I am told. Your picture makes me want to hug the little chubber (though of course he would then lance me with his only sting and disembowelled die a needless death so I will keep my love and admiration for him at a distance)

    1. Equally head-spinning is the fact that it was taken almost 50 years ago and hasn’t been topped. Michael Collins is still the person who has traveled farthest from Earth, still a hero, a thorough gentleman and all around good guy.

Let me know that I'm not talking to the wall...
