Watchful Eye

Here’s a little touch of nature for you.  I stopped to take some photos around the harbor at Algoma, Wisconsin.  It wasn’t a foggy day elsewhere, but conditions were right to create a foggy area around the piers and lighthouse.  I took a few photos (some I’ll be posting later) of the pier and a fisherman in the fog, and the lighthouse and boats.

As I finished and headed back to my vehicle, I noticed a few wildflowers growing near the water.  I stopped to take a few random shots.  Then I noticed a few bees – always a favorite photographic subject of mine – so I stopped to take a few photos of them.  Then, as I started to leave again, I noticed a flash of yellow.  An American Goldfinch landed in a nearby patch of thistles to enjoy a meal.  It didn’t seem  bothered by my presence, so I started taking photos.  (Some I’ll post later.)

While concentrating on the Goldfinch, I happened to notice a bee in the foreground and refocused on the bee for awhile…as the bird continued to feast in the background.

The one thing I don’t like about this image (and others in the batch) is the background.  I think it looks unnatural and fake. The background is simply the water of the harbor.  I would have preferred something that had a little more color variation, instead of the flat blue, but I wasn’t able to change my position to create a different look.  The thistles were only a foot or two from the water and I was shooting from a position higher than the bird.

Covering the Cosmos

We planted a patch of wildflowers next to our vegetable garden.  Unfortunately, the weeds are out performing the flowers.  Out of the several varieties that made up the wildflower mix we planted, the cosmos did best.  This is one that attracted some of the local wildlife.

Beside my wife’s flower bed, sprouting from a crack in the sidewalk, we have a cluster of sweet, tiny, pink poppies that appeared on their own.

I took this photo in the early morning hours.  I call it Twirling Floral Skirt because it reminds me of a young girl spinning around to make her skirt flow out.

This is a field of sunflowers in full bloom.  Just imagine what a difficult jigsaw puzzle this image would make.

I titled this one “Packed House” because it reminds me of people in a crowded theater as seen from the stage.

Yesterday morning started with a light blanket of fog.  As the sun pushed it’s way up through the foggy horizon, it created a nice silhouette of some Queen Anne’s Lace that grows at the edge of the field of oats that is next to lawn of our country home.

I found this monarch butterfly clinging to the underside of a purple coneflower in a meadow very early morning.  It was obvious, this is where it spent the night.  It was still in sleep-mode when I photographed it.  I was able to nudge it without it flying off.  I eventually coaxed it  to the top of the flower and posted a photo of that earlier ( see it here: Monarch of the Meadow)

For a little different feel, I added a bit of texture to this one.
