Baja Fairy Duster


When I snapped this photo of the bloom on a Baja Fairy Duster plant, I had no idea that a bee had snuck into the frame.  It looks like it is hovering like a tiny helicopter over there in the corner.

My parents had friends in Orange County, California who took a family photo while at a picnic at a park in the hills. When they developed the photo there was a mountain lion in the bushes watching their picnic.

Love this one with the backlight. They are so delicate and work perfectly for this kind of effect. That busy bee got a cameo.
