Mesmerizing

Flower, Sunflower, Seeds, Yellow, Green, Macro
In think, one of the coolest thing about sunflowers, is the intricate pattern of the seeds as they develop. If you stare at the center of the flower for awhile, it can be mesmerizing.  (Well, at least for me.)

This particular bloom was photographed at a farm field a short distance from our home in rural Kewaunee County, Wisconsin. I’ll have to post more images from this shoot in the near future.

Mini Metallic Magnificence

Green, Beetle, Bug, Insect, Macro

As tiny as it was, this beetle’s iridescent, metallic green color helped me spot it among the plant life in a farm field.

Funny how things often take a different path than you planned. I was standing in a field not far from our home, taking photos of bright, beautiful sunflowers a neighbor has planted.  While looking around for another vantage point a glint of green caught my eye.  I was able to snap of a couple of quick shots before this tiny beetle flew away in the breeze.

The breeze created a bit of a challenge, too.  It was moving the beetle’s perch back and forth, making it difficult to catch it in focus.  Out of the three shots I took, only this one is sharp enough to keep.  The little guy was so small, I had to crop the image to get him large enough to really notice.

Collection In the Clearing

Wildflowers, Flowers, Yellow, Green, MissouriHiking through the woods of northwest Missouri, I came across a clearing with a delightful arrangement of wildflowers.

When I’m photographing flowers I normally move in closer and focus on a particular bloom or two.  I snapped some of those images too, of course.  However, for this collection, I thought a more distant perspective was worthwhile; where you can see them in their natural state, growing wild and free among the other native grasses and plants .

You can view them in much greater detail by clicking on the photograph.  When you do, a larger, full-screen version of this photo will open in a new browser tab.

Branching Out

Spring, Leaf, Leaves, Green, Macro
One of my favorite spring images are the new, delicate leaves that sprout from  trees emerging from their winter dormancy.

As I walk through the woods I’m always scanning my surroundings for something that catches my eye.  This sprig was captured by the late afternoon sunlight and highlighted by a back-light of filtering through the trees, making the very common uncommonly interesting.  (At least to me.) It was just another twig among millions that caught my eye.

Hanging Hearts


Bleeding Hearts, Flowers, Stem, Dew, Drops, Pink, Garden
It’s not difficult to understand the thinking behind the common name of this garden favorite – bleeding heart. Its heart-shape pink or white blooms with a protruding tip make it a logical choice.

Bleeding hearts are a species of flowering plant in the poppy family. These bleeding hearts are from ,my wife’s flowerbed near our house.

Garden Grapes

Grape, Grapes, Grape Vine, Cluster, Purple, Blue
We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.  –  Marcus Aurelius

It looks like a colorful, flavorful, abundant harvest. I photographed these ripening clusters of grapes on an September day in rural Missouri with the lingering effects of an early morning dew still clinging to the fruit.

A Flair for the Dramatic


Flower, Yellow, Green, Petals, Curl, PetalThis wildflower seems to have a touch of graceful sophistication in its “wild.” A few of these beauties popped up on the edge of our property this summer. This bloom was the only one that demonstrated this particular flair for the dramatic.
