I spent a good twenty minutes kneeling under this tree, taking pictures of the flowers and their bees, the bees and their flowers. At some point, I stopped looking through the viewfinder and just started going at it, taking picture after picture after picture, the bees buzzing and humming just over and around and beyond my head. It may be just about time to try that approach with the rest of my life.

Then again, things were pretty good when I started looking again, too.
