A Look Upwards

Flem and I must have walked past this dead tree in the local dog park (which even has its own Facebook page) countless times.
And I had never thought of looking up at it.
Something made me do so the other day, and I saw this beautiful bee hive nestled in the hollow of a branch, right above my head.
Another dog owner told me it's been there for years.
And when I eventually looked down, there was this friendly fellow at my feet, waiting to say hello and wanting a pat on the head.

    1. Thank you, but the honeycomb itself was very beautiful with different shades of colour. It was about 3 metres from the ground.

  3. Good to have a dog park near your home where owner can walk the dog and both can pause for a friendly chat. That friendly fellow( black and white) seems to be like a breed (Japanese dog?) I ocassionally come across during my mornings at the ECP because of their retrieving skills

    Well-formed natural honey combs - do you always carry your camera along with you? If it is a pocket camera, I'll be curious to know what model can deliver such good closed-ups.

  4. The dog parks allow you to let your dog run free, off the leash. In other usual parks, your dog should be kept on a leash. That dog is the size and shape of a Labrador, but has the colour and markings (white chest) of a Border Collie. Could be mixed. Very friendly and loveable chap.

    After I saw the honeycomb, I came back the next day with my dSLR and a 105mm lens. Because my camera has an APSC sensor (smaller than full-sized sensor), the 105mm lens has the effect of a 160 mm lens.
