There's no way to misinterpret our dog Photon's feelings. She is happy to be back in familiar surroundings, amid her own stuff. Notice how one paw is pushed under her "blankie". Her bedding made the trip with us to help her feel at home, but there's no substitute for being in the right place!
Checking out our driveway, I spotted a small bee circling some Black-eyed Susans, so I added an extension tube to a macro lens (a Canon 100 L) to go beyond life-size, and caught a few shots in dim light. It was also fun to get really close to some tiny, delicate flowers, using the same lens plus tube. A few minutes later, the rain began to pour.
