[Insert Bee pun here]

I was home sick on Monday so hobbled out to the garden when I saw some butterflies inspecting the flowers. They had taken off by the time I got out there but then this lil guy buzzed into the  frame:

Sherwood Forest - photowalk Wednesday

My Wife and I wandered down to Browns Bay on Wednesday night. I had my new Lowepro Fastpack 200 strapped to my back and as the sun set through the trees I whipped out my lil DSLR and got a few shots:

When we got to the beach the light was great and it was a very clear night. Looking out to Rangitoto you could see the Coromandel further along too.

Photo Walk Wednesday

For todays photowalk, Warren drove us to Milford beach. 
The sun was shining and the waves were... waving. Here's a few shots with my new Canon 17-55 2.8. I love my new lens. My wife even let me get a new backpack for my camera gear. I love my wife.

Here is Warren being blurry while I inspect this seaweed. Rangitoto looms in the distance as always.

A lonely gull cleans itself on the beach. Maybe it was checking itself out in the wet sand.

The steps down to the beach are cracked and old but have great textures.
