A few more flowers

8 posts in this topic

I don't think I can get sick of making photos of flowers. There's always something to shoot. Here's a few from yesterday.

I never get tired of flower images, and these are great, Mike. I especially love the colors in the wings of the bee in image No. 1. Sweet work.

I agree with Steve. The eye sure is drawn to the bee. Cool!

Thanks guys. Coming from you two that means alot. One is the author of the next New York best seller and the other is the best known photog in SE Minnesota. Can't ask for any more than that.

Congrats to both of you by the way and thanks again!

Mike, I'm in SW Minnesota. grin Also, I'm probably the best known wildlife photographer in Marshall and Canby, MN, but will be soon forgot. frown I do have a gallery on Picturetrail and it's surprising how many hits I've been getting this weekend. However, I'm sure it will be very short lived.

Back to your flora, flowers alone are nice but don't really trip my trigger, but with a bee or other insect on them, well, that I do enjoy.

Mike, I just realized that I put SE instead of SW. I can't find my way out of a paper bag without someone there to point the way so forgive me on that. grin

You may be soon forgot but at least your getting some great locations to shoot! I was on your site, it's pretty nice. The link the paper has doesn't work as is, though. You have to take the "." off the end.

Whoa, love your brightly colored flower shots. I have waited many moments for a bee or butterfly on a flower shot, but never quite captured it as I snap the pic when they fly off. Interesting stamen detail, (at least I think that's what they are, I'm not much of a botonist), in you second photo, that one stamen looks like a heart.

I like the first one best. The color on the wings of the bug complement the purple of the flower.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
    • Holy shamoley. Ott sacked em up big time!!
