You have more patience than me, Erica! Butterflies and bees were buzzing around a bush of flowers recently and I so wanted to capture some photos, but the little buggers moved every time I took a shot! Patience was needed to keep trying, but I have so little — always thinking of all the many things I have to do.

I prefer wading birds and ducks — they moved slower, stay longer, give me plenty of opportunities to get the perfect shot.

Great photos!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
