Garden Visits


My trip south took me to several nursery's and gardens.
I lose myself when I am in a field of flowers, in nature.
The girlfriends that I was with felt the same way.
Of course I am led to the sunflowers always.


I like sculptures in any form.
The idea of plants for hair attracted the whimsical side of me.



The purple Iris that stands out in any setting.
Walking through the door I see of all these flowers, aroma was grand.
What a comforting spot to enjoy.



Macro Practice
Seems to be a constant continued learning process for me.
This bee was being very patient with my compulsions of camera button squeeze.

You nailed this one for sure. Amazing that you can also see the grains of pollen this bee has been feasting in.

Lovely set of photos. I tend to lose myself when looking at your shots. Actually I think I speak for a lot of us photographers when I say that we sometimes lose ourselves when being creative or being surrounded by beauty that we must capture every moment of it.
