Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

These tiny honey bees are called Stingless bees. So called because unlike their other bigger honey bee counterparts, they do not have stings. However, they do have a mean bite (but tolerable) and are very hyper!

Stingless bees are tiny compared to the other honey bees. They actually look like pesky flies!

This week’s photo challenge involves taking photos demonstrating the concept of focus. Mine, as you can see from the three photos above, have bees in focus against a blurred background. 🙂

I will actually post a separate entry about bees and my experience taking samples for my Thesis. It’s because I still have a lot of photos from that trip and I want to share it to all of you as part of the awareness on the importance of bees and why we should protect them (because there’s a sudden drop in their numbers! 😦 ). I hope you guys read that, too.

For now, I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I’ll enjoy your entries for this week’s photo challenge! 😀

PS. Please don’t mind my dirty hands, lol. Getting my hands dirty is part of the thesis sampling experience. 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

This is my first time to participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge of The Daily post. For this week’s theme, I’ve chosen this photo of an important time in my life.

Success is sweeter when earned and achieved TOGETHER. 🙂

This photo was taken after it was announced that our dance group won the 2012 National Dance Championship-College Hip Hop Division.

A picture is indeed, worth a thousand words. In this stolen photo, a lot of things have already been said and thought. This photo of us together summarized all the hardships, sacrifices, happiness, sadness, injuries (physical and emotional), moments, and time that we’ve shared together in making the dance routine that won us the Championships.

We danced and we won… TOGETHER. 🙂
