~My first trip for the year to Stanley Park was amazing! I was exhausted by the end of my trip, but it was worth it! I'm hoping future visits will allow me to see more wildlife, while keeping my distance. I did get to sit with some ducks and geese. Patience like the Buddha, is what it took. I just sat on a rock, by a pond and let them do their thing. The geese actually led their goslings closer to me, grooming and taking naps. (You can see a few pictures here.)

~I also found a couple of good spots, that had a ton of bees. The process to capture them took a lot of patience but I'm getting better at patience with age. I'll have more chances to catch them, doing their work over the next few months, while continuing to improve my photography. I love nature!

This break has been nice and even more so since just found out my classes don't start until September 9th. The 4:30 a.m. rises are over, at least by the alarm clock.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to fit in a little more photography, writing, and blogging, now that I don't have to commute to the college everyday. It's not a lot of spare time, just enough. I'll do my best.

I do plan on getting back to product reviews, why not? If I like a product why not share it? I also plan on doing some more recipes for animals and humans. I'd also like to throw some short videos on here to practice my editing skills. I didn't take the class to lose the skills, so again, why not? I also plan to change over my website, or rather build it from scratch instead of using this template. That might be while because it needs to be perfect and I do have a full course load. After all, I am showcasing the skills that I have learned for employment.

Books on the reading list for the remainder of my break.

Be Careful What You Pray For: A Novel by Kimberla Lawson Roby The Prodigal Son by Kimberla Lawson Roby Eyes to See: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle) by Joseph Nassise King of the Dead: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller by Joseph Nassise

I just wanted to share  some pictures of a black bee (I'm a bee lover), a female valley carpenter bee, according to google. (I have no idea.) From the start of her feed, to the end. The males are golden I colour, but I haven't seen them yet. I wasn't trying to get a series of shots, that's why the entire flower is not in frame but I liked what occurred. In future I will try for a series, to get everything in frame.
