Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow | Where’s the Honey!?

Continued from my last Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow | Green to Growth which is more a foreseen process than specifically foreshadow-ing, I thought it best to follow up with this post!

The Only thing thats missing is the:
‘Honey’

NOTE: pay close attention to the movements inside some images, you will catch an important insect, or two, or three … this is tied into last foreshadow post. 

It is the final movement lol, in the Green to Growth process. My last photo entry for the foreshadow theme.

 

garden view

A view of the full flower bush above.

a sneak peek

My overview from across the plant. Look closely now, you will see the final addition to piece…

there's one

The rest are the amazing incredible iPhone 4S shots I took this morning… With precise movement views of the workers present .. You will have to look over the images full screen. A few shots actually catch more flying in from different sides and areas of the photos.

a lil' worker

 

bee 1

“Where’s the Honey hunny?” These next shots are my favorite!

    A kind reminder

No need to just take my photos, copyright laws apply. You need written permission to reproduce: just ask... I’m a nice person, I’ll likely say Yes! ( with the right royalties and contracts of course;) )

 

shots of many

actually found most of the area I was photographing was literally full of at least my count 6 bees in total!

This was an absolutely wondrous experience for me. The flower bush is located at the steps of a restaurant, on the corner of two main roads. The bees were working and didn’t even notice me. I watched them frolic like children in leaves… Standing their in awe at their perfect positions, I couldn’t help but see them as children rolling down grass sided hills, giggling in the fields. It was like I wasn’t even there. An Alice In Wonderland moment I suppose. 

a little closer

…I moved in a little closer, not without fear though lol…

The traffic probably starred I didn’t care… I hand more imagined myself getting chased home by hundreds of angry Bumble Bees! (Phew!)

notice the right

Are You Paying Close Attention to the beauty here?

Completely captivating … 

I had to get closer still …

 

Views of two or more

views of two: this photo has three bees in total.

Two on the right bloom, were wrestling in the pollen amazing

She’s absolutely stunning to me. And, I have never been a fan of bees.

 

 

A Closer Look at the Bee

Another close up

 

I hope you enjoy, and will fly over for a visit again soon.  JayNine xo

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow | Green to Growth

Summertime leafs, less and less room for writing in my household. The Weekly Photo Challenges offered by the Daily Post here on WordPress, has provided me an outlet for sharing our experience regardless of the time to write, being unavailable for now. This post covers my postaday tag from the challenge and sums up some of the daily summer occurrences within our little family unit. 

The foreshadow idea is ‘green pods foreshadow flowers growth’

A Perfectly Poised Pod

A Perfect Pod, this is only one of the many perfectly poised pods we found on our walk.


 

Since being first introduced to angellicsscalliwags blog on WordPress and her Nature Study posts containing lesson details from her homeschooled children, my LO and I have been infatuated with nature influenced picture taking. We’ve watched a large trees one year change process, and enjoyed searching for the swamp Monster in Spring through seeking signs of growth/life, in our own nature adventures

 

Green to Growth

Green to Growth this flower shares each step in the growth process, many times over through its bush

We can see clearly something’s coming….

This flower (I don’t remember her name), has each set of its growth processes, apparent daily on its own large joyful bush! One flower type, expressing its lives steps. 

These are the remaining photos for now. I wanted to complete this post firstly. I have better quality photos to add this afternoon

I hope you enjoy a look around the process for now. Stop over Moms (parents, caregivers, and homeschoolers alike) at angelicsscalliwags for a lesson in nature. There’s a world of learning going on at Mrs.Claire’s  

Growth

Presenting Growth, the final step is in your enjoyment. I will be adding more high quality photos of these flowers later. Enjoy for now!

Thank you kindly for stopping by. 

I would like to offer my readers a look into the other bloggers who take these photography challenges above and beyond, just taking pictures (like me). I don’t have the photographer skills they do, and I will share their links as time permits. For now, you can find a section of PingBacks and links left by these talented folks, under the original Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow | in the Comments section. ;) 

**Additional photo update**

Additional photo 1–green pod


Pink Pod Parts

Pink pod parts slightly revealed … Notice the dew droplets. It gets even better in next post.

None of these images have been altered or edited in anyway (accept to ‘crop’ for up close detailed enjoyment)

Delicate pod view

Delicate pod view with dew and sunscapes

 Again no editing….See our other many photo ventures in the categoryPopAGraph“!

Perfectly Poised in Pink

Perfectly poised in pink. You can almost see the flower, holding her head up in confidence.

And, before the last, just a reminder: 

I ask before I share anyone’s photos for any reason and I expect you to do the same. These photos are taken by me and cannot be reproduced in any way, without first my written consent! Which I dislike when people write so let me finish with:  Im a nice girl chances are I’d say Yes, just be respectful and Ask Me k, Thanks! ;) 

 

 

that's it from Green to Growth ...

that’s it, from Green to Growth…but, we all knew this was coming.

My absolute fav! 

JayNine xo 

PS- I will be back to writing my adventures in parenting shortly. Thank you readers for your patience with me here. These photos are taken of a bush we walk by daily to get LO to ‘school’. It’s a perfect living example of each step in the process of flowers ‘Green to Growth’

foreshadow

foreshadowa perfect example of the definition. coming of a perfect storm. Saturday, August 3rd, 2013.

Pay close attention to the cloud details through this post. They’re just irreplaceable views!


You can see the rains falling in the patch of darker blue in the center of the screen. Foreshadowing the arrival of a rain sorry. Along with its zealous dark clouds, a perfect picture from natures own creation. 

Storm Foreshadow

Its interesting how we could just watch the rain traveling from one town to another. I am grateful for the opportunity to experience such incredible views. I wanted to edit the image but, getting the full effect of its movements, really required leaving in the school building there.

Notice the gap between Suns past rays, slightly get smaller in the image to follow…

Closer and Closer

Notice the gap between the Suns and building distance grow smaller, before your eyes in these images…

CLOUDS!!!

“Mind the Gap”
 the storm arrives over head in this next photo …

Over the School

Storms Arrival

Storm arrives overhead moving in from the West, trees reacting to storm winds.


As Stroms dark blanket rages, passing over house…

as storm passes over house

the view of dark blanket overhead, as storm passes over house


 

Darkness Pauses

the Darkness Pauses as the Storm prepares to flee

 Just LOOK at Those CLOUDS! 

I am like a big child. I could lye on the grass with LO forever just to marvel at the personalities of the skies that thrive above us. 

 And of course, the big finale however usual an occurrence, however typical it is to have after storm, this just wasn’t expected. The type of ‘rain storm’ we had, just seemed normal, and without clues to its next reveal. 

 

“Without further ado, the pièce de résistance”

rainbows and promises

rainbows and promises to be seen …

Always grateful for the opportunity to reveal at the wonders of natures glory.

The remainder of this week is still the foreshadow theme from the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.

The possibilities of personal goal achievements are endless! 

Personally, I haven’t had anytime to write a well-thought out post, in a long while (due our present set of unforeseen circumstances, lol: I will posted about that when I can).  Up here in Canada, we’ve ‘Long Weekend’ here, in Ontario. Much excitement activity and company, stealing a day away from my regular routines, lol. It’s been quite the family “fun”… so to speak! (saying THAT with a whole lotta SARCASM! Hey, maybe I should suggest Sarcasm for next weeks Weekly Photo Challenge: Theme | ?! Why Not!? HA! Cuz’ that Joke would be on me for that one! ;)* 

There are however, much more important issues going on in this world around us that I have written briefly in my last worded post. I hope you will take a look at This is For Maile, Pass it On… As the situation there takes priority  over my first world problems here anyday. ours here.

An apology to my regular readers, and hope you will stick around for some good ole writing as soon as I can get back on my stylish feet again. In the meantime, take care of you; you’re in our thoughts daily ;)

**The photo above is the first ‘masterpiece’ post of mine. I snapped this quick shot, no preview, no focus! Just enough time to pull-over and clicked. No photo effects or special effects like usual. I took only one of this specific view. Normally, I have a chance to take multiple shots and chose the best looking. This is not the case. I just love the way it looks through my iPhone.
