I am excited to report that for the fourth year, one of my pieces has been selected to represent Kentucky artists at the Governor’s Kentucky Derby Exhibit in Frankfort for three weeks prior to the Kentucky Derby on May 5. This year’s piece, entitled Bee Balm and Small Bee is one of personal favorites. If you look very closely, you will see a very fine spider web on the flower.

As a resident of the Bluegrass State, I am so proud of the beautiful scenery and wonderful photo ops in our state. Check out all of the entries in the exhibit and consider visiting Kentucky, especially during Derby season.

This shot was taken with a Canon Rebel using F5.6, auto white balance. It was not sunny, but bright enough that I could use a fast shutter speed to capture the busy bee.

Have fun with your camera 🙂
