Flower Friday

The title is kind of redundant since this week has been all flowers but hey, I did say this week would be flower heavy. I’m saving my bug pics for next week and boy do I have a few good ones. From bees to Assasin bugs and butterflies to wierd coloured ones it will be a fun week of new pics. Have a great weekend. 🙂

Get ready for some floral fireworks. One of my favorite subjects to photograph are flowers and last Wednesday I spent a couple hours perusing Meadowbrook Park and the Idea Garden at the University of Illinois. Well 700 pics and alot of sorting I have a plithera of colourful flower pics to share, so here we go. 🙂

Fall Flower Friday

As a bonus to my perusal of the fall leaf colours over the past week were the flowers at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana Illinois that just refuse to go away. Its been a mild fall in the midwest and with no hard freeze yet the flowers and bugs are making the best of it.. 🙂

Flower Friday

How do you choose only a few pics when you take and keep over 400? I had the opprotunity twice over the past week to visit my dad in Illinois and after breakfast each visit we ended up perusing the flowery goodness of Meadowbrook Park and for a short time I lost myself in photographing the gardens and the wildflower walk and describing the various flora to my dad, a retired science teacher who spmetimes leaves comments as Mr.P a knickmane his students gave him a long time ago. So after an hour of chasing butterflies and Bees and filling a memory card on my camera I said farwell to my dad and got back into my big orange ship and got back to work. These short visits really recharged my mental battery, just to get out of the truck for awhile that really helps… 🙂
