Whatever Weds. Fall Color

Fall color has been a bit patchy here, but last week a friend and I found a little along the Carson River.

…some late bloomers,

Late Summer Wildflowers

and a Painted Lady. It’s been below freezing many nights and mornings this past week so I was surprised to see this butterfly still here.

I had a lovely visit with my Mom and Step-Dad.  I hope you’re all having a good week, and are making some fun plans for the week-end. I’m going to see my Grandson’s, and my Mom once more before she heads back to warm and sunny FL, and hopefully, I’ll see some more of Falls beautiful colors and delights.

I took my D810 mounted with my LensBaby Composer Pro out for a walk looking for flowers in the neighborhood the other day.   I put the Soft Focus Optic in the Composer along with the 16mm macro adapter; here’s a few images from that walk.

Arizona Sunflower at f/2- I love that blur!

a Rose f/4- I wanted to get a bit more in focus so stopped it down a stop.

It looks like my LensBaby will get along fine with the D810.

I’m off for a “ladies  long week-end” with a good friend. We plan to hike in the mountains by a lake, and do a lot of photography. I hope the sky is clear so we can photograph the stars at least one night.

I hope you all have a lovely week-end. I’ll catch up when I return.

A cheerful sight!

If I’m lucky I get to see and photograph a Hooded Oriole once during Spring. This year I was lucky! Isn’t he beautiful?

I was photographing the Bald Eagle when it left it’s perch and flew away. After watching it soar higher and higher into the thermal stream I turned around to head to the car for the next birding location and, there this Hooded Oriole was! It must have been watching and waiting for the Eagle to leave so it could claim the perch for a little while.

Have a great and cheery week-end everyone!

Yellow

A little bit of this and that to share today. While developing images I discovered all the images I was selecting to work on had a theme; the color Yellow.  Perhaps it’s because it has been quite nice, warm, and sunny here the last few days? I don’t know, but Yellow just feels good doesn’t it.

I took this image earlier in the year.  Male Western Meadowlark

What’s Blooming?

Couler’s Matilija Poppy.  I’m never sure if those I see are wild or cultivated. I’m going to say this one is cultivated since it was outside an industrial building.

I just love this Poppy. It’s my favorite of them all.  The flowers can get as big as a salad plate: 6 inches! It is the largest of any native CA plant.  Just look at all the Pollen!
