Bees

This summer “just” gone….on a long ramble down the Taieri River we…myself and intrepid, inflatable boat enthusiast, Dee…. discovered bees, hundreds of them, poking about on a sand bar at the waters edge….


… coming and going to a couple of spots…like someone had performed a waggle dance back at the hive and reported that the river was running with honey….

…took us a while to figure it out…obvious really….

….this is where bees go to drink….

….went back a few months later to confirm….

….yep…this IS where bees go to drink….

…and what happens if you get too close?….

…you forget which way up you’re holding you’re camera….

(…oh, and this is a only a mile or two down river from where that tractor driver discovered the moa footprints….(google “moa footprints”)…..)

Stool Sample

…I could make a bunch of these….

…(it’s been too long between poop jokes)….

…some poop free stills….

…(that’s caught me up with the “blog-lag” of finished stuff….will try to be more pro -active in future)….

…(“stool sample”…giggle)…

Not A Pot

….more of a box….

….all polyurethaned on the inside so you could probably put flowers in it if you wanted to….

…another in the series of things I did last year but neglected to post.

Also In Moving Pictures

….one of these….

….and some stills in case you have less than a minute to spare!…

…(and, yes, I did finish this last year but have been mucking about instead of making the moving pictures and showing you all)….

The Main Feature

…or should that be featurette?….

…keep your eyes peeled for the next instalment of “stuff-on-a-lazy-susan-in-the-library-with-stacked-wood-out-the-window”….

…the photo gallery…

…I’d add a commentary but I may have said enough already….

Deedrees Rekkid

…celebrated the release of Dee’s new album, “She Shanties For Frank”, a week back…

…wicked gig in a great room (let’s do that again)…didn’t get many (if any) good picks from the back (and under the influence)….but maybe if you know this guy…

…he recorded quite a bit of the gig and took loads of photos….

…anyways….
