Giant Bumblebee Photobombs My Promotional Video

To shoot this video, I scouted a spot in the garden, near a patch of Iceland poppies. I hit the record button and started talking to my iPhone. Suddenly a giant, buff-tailed bumblebee exploded out of a yellow poppy, spun around like a helicopter, and buzzed out of the frame.

I thought, “Should I re-shoot it?”

I went ahead and sent out the newsletter anyway since the workshop was less than 2 days away.

I shouldn’t have worried. The following afternoon, I checked on the signups.

The number of people who registered for the workshop doubled from the day before.

Sometimes I worry about my stuff not being good enough; or not polished enough. Maybe being “Raw and Real” isn’t so bad after all.

Now if I could just find my flying co-star…

That’s it for now.

Talk soon,

PS What would YOU do, reshoot or leave it bee?

    Hi Marion. I am in NewZealand and missed your compost making workshop. Couldnt work out what time it was in NZ time. Are you doing another one or have you written a book explaining the hows of composting. I have for a long time tried to compost and it still seems a mystery to me. Would love to see your workshop. Let me know if you are repeating it please. Isnt technology wonderful. Doesnt matter where in the world we live we can connect and help each other.
    Regards Marnie
