Fumble Bee

When it comes to photography, quick thinking is important otherwise you'll find yourself looking at a shot that slipped away. Keep your eyes open and stay alert to the surrounding environment.

For example, the bee in this photo would have been a nice focal point but as you can see, I wasn't prepared for the shot.

With winter in full swing here in Seattle, bee shots are not possible so I'll have to wait until next spring before I can give the bees another chance at taking center stage.

Life is not much different. If you're asleep at the switch, it passes by quickly and you'll have nothing to show for it. Look around, see life in different ways and take creative chances. Don't be afraid to try new things because if you don't travel down the many paths that lead to failure, you can't find the one that leads to success.
