Two photos taken February 2 2019 – both I and the camera-person were freezing. We wanted to capture the blossoms of the tree (seen behind me) as a background. Not long afterwards there were both fierce winds and hail which decimated the blossoms. It is not clear if bees or other pollinators were able to get any work done. We’ll see.
It turned out that the hail was coming down so rapidly and bouncing so much there were difficulties keeping the camera in focus.
