Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beholder...
SmugMug Daily Link
I think with this shot I found a way to include a dried up Queen Anne's Lace in a pretty format:-) The geometry of those flowers lasts through their entire growing season I think. In the background is of course a morning glory.
When I took this shot, I thought I was going to like this the best and want to post this for my daily, but I was disappointed back at the computer. I had to crop it. I wanted to get closer, but there was a ditch with briers between me and the flowers.
I do really like this morning glory shot:
As well as this one:
which was my 2nd choice as a daily today.
This yellow beauty was close by. So many of the wildflowers blooming right now are yellow. This is common evening primrose:
I was excited by the insect on this yellow flower( wingstem or yellow ironweed):
As I was taking the shots, I clearly heard this red-talled hawk flying my way and then overhead. I reacted as quick as I could but not quick enough:-( This is the 2nd shot. In the first one his head is just into the frame. He continued on over to the woods a short distance away, and I could hear him but not see him.
Oh, and there was one last shot I wanted to show...the location:
It's rare for anyone to bother me out there. Sometimes folks on bikes go by and wave. I'm probably going back this morning. I really need my knee high boots!
I used this link to identify the wildflowers.
