Not sure if I like how this one came out. It’s a neat pic, but I’m thinking this arrangement here doesn’t do it justice. Maybe it just needs to be bigger. Lots of detail that seems to get lost.
I like the color palate of this one – maybe I’m not using the term right, but it seems scoped – bounded – and right in line with the relative drabness of this skipper.
Lots of neat colors in this one – maybe not complimentary, but nature does what nature does. And we’d all do well to remember that.
Love the tongue. The precision amazes me!
On the trumpet vine, again.
Fun shot of a hoverfly. Really a good pollinator on the right flowers. Not quite as elegant as the honeybee, but it has its place. Those eyes, though…
From the same date. I like the colors in this one. Among other things. “Inadvertent pollinator” again.
Arguably an ugly critter, but I think it’s fairly compelling. Especially on the backdrop of the delicate dahlia petals. And I’m a little backed-up on the bonuses, so there’s that…
This probably isn’t okay. But… I thought I’d show you what I do in the winter for photo therapy when I can’t roll down the front porch into the flowers and bees.
Here’s a rough-legged hawk from Friday of this week:
And here’s a wild mustang stallion portrait from yesterday. Shot in the west desert of Utah. Check out his scars! They fight a lot.
I probably won’t do this again, but kinda wanted to show that my camera isn’t idle in the winter… Hope you enjoyed the distractions.
On a trumpet vine. Neat, no?
Woke up to snow this morning. Ugh. It’s supposed to happen in the Rockies in the winter, but…
How about a counterpoint? That tongue! Wound like a watch spring.
