Yesterday afternoon I took a walk after lunch. I like to carry along my old Olympus E-500 with a macro lens attached. I guess you could say I was on a quest. First, get some exercise. Second, capture an image of my neighborhood. I was walking past an ornamental rosemary plant and rubbed my free hand along a branch to release the fragrance that makes rosemary such a lovely herb. It’s nice to involve all the senses on a lovely afternoon.
Several bees were also on a challenging quest. They were busy combing the small lavender-tinted flowers on the bush for pollen. They seemed to be doing pretty well for a late-summer day. Fall is just around the corner. A new season will put us on a different quest; much like the one Cheri Lucas Rowlands challenged us to take. Fall colors anyone?
