Scattered in the green of summer, remarkable reds please the eye. I hunted for the Canadian Lilly this week along wetland and creek banks. Hiding in the shade, I found several wisely seeking shady ground. I gathered a few other summer reds in the hunt. Bee Balm is self interpreting I suppose. A red squirrel gave a rare pose and the Ruby Meadowhawk dragonflies greeted me by the parking lot, loving summer’s heat.
Friday Friends and Floral Friday
Looking back over a year of photos is the thrill of the capture and the agony of delete. Each week, photos are culled, choices made and posted. Thinning the selection even more poses quite a challenge. I thought this year I’d chose an even 2 dozen. This year I decided to enter 3 photo exhibitions and stretch myself and my skill. Four ribbons graced my photos so my eye and craft is improving. But for these I put some of the technical aside and held on to some of my own emotion attachments and just chose my favorites.
Enjoy! Happy New Year! Wondering what we’ll be capturing together in a new year.
SHINE is the WPC photo challenge of the week. I immediately thought of this picture capturing the sun’s rippled reflection as a backdrop for a dragonfly photo shoot last summer. I posted a similar picture when the theme was Frame.
