One of my neighbors has a pretty serious collection of cacti planted in the front yard like some crazy Northwest desert and they are all going through bloom cycles right now. Just as I got ready to release the shutter a #bee arrived to do a little work.
As I've mentioned here before, Jonsrud point is one of my favorite places at sunrise. This particular morning the view out toward the mountain was a bust, but I hung around for a good hour afterward and as the sun broke over the top of the clouds, everything lit up in Oregon Summer Sunrise light. This iimage is from my latest couple rolls of film from my Hasselblad.
I'm not sure what species of flower this is, and not for a lack of Googling. If you know, enlighten us in the comments!
