I don't know what happens...it's like they have some kind of personal gravity that pulls the lens...

One of the natives was posing today (they are usually so quick I never get an opportunity like this)

Beautiful Dirt! We are still seeing snow Thumbs down but know spring is right around the corner Hurray!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

First butterfly or moth or whatever it is of the season. Not pleased with the focus - it didn't stick around but for a second...but it's kind of neat anyway.

check this out--

bee on flower--nothing unusual here...
Thumb of 2015-03-12/dirtdorphins/45592a
next frame, bee falls off flower! Blinking what the?
Thumb of 2015-03-12/dirtdorphins/ac0e72
I was a little shocked too, but she pretended like no one saw that and hopped back on the flower and I missed that shot,
next frame, acting like nothing happened
Thumb of 2015-03-12/dirtdorphins/5fb1a7
nonchalantly crawling up the flower,
Thumb of 2015-03-12/dirtdorphins/3930fd
but now she's really hanging on! Hilarious!
