Good morning, all! Here is my contribution to Dutch Goes the Photo‘s Tuesday Challenge: Fuzzy. I love the fuzzy thorax of the bumble bee. Did you know that the bumble bee used to be called a humble bee? That’s because it has no stinger. So don’t be afraid of the humble bumble bee. Try petting one. They don’t particularly like it, but what can they do?
I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, and Nigel.
