Bee Yourself

"Bee Yourself" I went out for a walk with my camera at Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck in the hope of shooting a few end of summer flowers. This bee kept flying around the orange flowers I was shooting. I decided to include the bee in the shot and was glad I did. Sometimes I just go with the flow when I'm shooting and not all that worried about what I originally set out to do. This shoot represents me just being myself as a photographer.
