worst models ever . . .

just to let you know . . . bees make terrible models . . . these little buzzeres where in absolutely no mood to have me interrupt their work for pictures.  i actually had to shake the tree a few times to get them to fly to a new blossom so that i could find them again.  eventually, they went to another tree and i went inside.

. . . busy boys

what do you do when you have a photo shoot with two busy boys who just want to climb and jump and play on tractors?

you let those boys climb and jump and play on tractors and chase them around with your camera and just capture them being them . . . 

i love it!
