2012, Day 123 - Mason

In my yard every spring you can hear the steady buzz of the mason bees.  They are very respectful neighbors and in the eight years I have lived in this house I have never been stung nor have my dogs.  Their hive is near my front door and I have had to assure the mail carrier in the past that they are not at all aggressive and while they can sting they do so only very rarely.  So they live out their lives pollinating flowers and building their intricate nests leaving everyone else to carry on in peace.

Tonight I am sharing two versions of this image, one is processed so that it looks a bit like a drawing.  I really like the effect but worry some times that in is a breach of artistic integrity.

  1. Both are really interesting to look at. The processed one makes it look like a dinosaur!
