Description

This photographer had to put his sweatshirt over his head to get a little respite from all of the insects that were flying around this patch of Sierra wildflowers. The honey bees were not much of a problem but the mosquitos were relentless in trying to suck your blood (my arms and shirt were covered in smashed mozzies, yuk )and the tiny flying beetles would fly into your ears, nostrils, and mouth. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the stifling heat and humidity on this spring day. It was a short but tough photo expedition for me and my 7th grade niece. My niece toughed it out and we both came away with a few great photos. It was exhausting experience but I can't wait to do it again this year!
