When you are tall - getting close is an athletic event I tell you - but I tried. I did get close, and I got far away - here are some that I liked:
This one is probably my favorite
The wind was making it wave a little, so I have a few blurry ones.

Getting close was hard, there were rocks in the way, and bees.
I'm allergic to bees
I found this one on a fishing trip.
I know - I should have been fishing, but! there are so many things to photograph!
And just for fun
