Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Creativity in the Time of Covid

This week, Tina is looking at Creativity in the Time of Covid as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. An amazing piece of timing from my perspective as you will see.

While capturing images in the garden, I’ve very often focused my attention on bees, partly because they make interesting if not always cooperative subjects to photograph, but also because my grandson broadcasts a regular podcast called The God Of Honeybees. Yesterday he became a published author for the first time with a book of the same title. I am so proud of him and his achievements as you will have no doubt already surmised if you have read any of my posts in which he has featured including Happy 21st Birthday Grandson and  Collage – A Celebration.

Note; The cover image is by David Provolo and the book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I don’t know if I will ever be able to match Justin’s creative writing abilities although I hope eventually to get my stories published (something else I can work on while I’m stuck at home thanks to COVID.) Meanwhile I will continue to look for bees in the garden.

  1. Bees are so fierce looking aren’t they? I love photographing them, always focused on a mission nothing standing in their way, so pretty, almost docile while sitting on a flower at the same time. Congrats to you grandson, great accomplishments!

  2. Amazing captures of these bees, wow!!
    Congratulations to your grandson’s book, Sue! Thank you for sharing the great news with us. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Louise. Both Justin’s book and podcast promote open discussion on topics that are taking center stage in todays world. It’s refreshing to come across someone who wants to hear both sides of an argument.
