This wonderful shot of a bee was taken by Leslie Stager. She is a freelance nature photographer/videographer,a silk painter, and a Perinatal Massage Instructor and Author.
She said about taking this photo: "One day I flew on the back of a bee into the currant bush to learn what the bee sees. I buried my nose in flower stamens and rubbed pollen over my legs. I hummed a bee sonnet while floating through the currant forest. I've never been the same since."

This beautiful shot by Maureen Spagnolo brings to mind these linesfrom the poem "Sunrise on the Hills", by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
"I stood upon the hills, when heaven's wide arch
Was glorious with the sun's returning march,
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales."

This shot taken by Caleb Austin (of Bruington, Virginia,) typifies the free feeling of a summer day. We thought it nicely illustrates the final plunge of summer, before we welcome in the fall weather. Ranin Brown is jumping into the Saco River in Buxton Maine. Geronimo!
