Next In An Overdone Series: Sunflower With Bee

Just can’t help myself from sharing when I find a nice still from the timelapses I do of the sunflowers in my backyard patch (click it for the bigger picture):

As to why I timelapse? It’s all part of making my voluntary observations for the Great Sunflower Project more efficient. Rather than physically park myself in front of a chosen flower for a 30-minute interval (when I should be working), I let my camera capture whatever activity occurs for review at a later time. In the words of Dana Carvey’s “Church Lady,” how conveeeeeeeeeenient!.

PS. That round rusted thing hanging in the background on the well-weathered northside fence post was unearthed by me during some of my previous backyarchaeological excavations. I think it’s something related to a brake system from some old jalopy that was parked back here before the garage got built in 1916, but if anyone eyeballing it has a more-informed idea I’d love to hear it.

The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
