A "Profusion" of yellows...

Recommended Posts

I'm not a botanist, I don't want to know every species of plants & flowers. However, I do appreciate what plants, flowers, trees and shrubs represent...LIFE!

Right now my local landscape is covered in bloom from countless species of flowering plants. I happened upon these yesterday afternoon while on route to the ranch. Like I said, I can't identify many plant species, but I do enjoy them for what they are.

In this particular case, the area that I stopped to photograph was massive "PROFUSION" of yellows as seen in these results.

Some of these flowers had a strong hint of yellow/orange color.

Some were just amazingly beautiful to gaze at.

Some of these little yellow gems shared their space with the Wild Rose. Can any of you identify the little green wasp depicted here on the right hand side of the frame? It's brillant iredescent green coloration is amazing!

Those are gorgeous shots, Stu! I have no idea what they are, but they sure are beautiful. I like the second one the best.

Very nice Stu!...love the profusion of the yellows!....I'm pretty sure they are "trefoils" of some type.....we have similar species here in Minnesota...."bird's foot trefoil"....our fields,openings, and roadsides are full of them at this time....

Love 'em all Stu. The 2nd and last do stand out a little more to me though.

Sure, don't ask the bee guy confused... I do believe that would be a sweat bee (Hymenoptera: Halictidae Augochlora sp.) wink.

Ok, so I didn't want to feel guilty about distracting you from your daily rigors of getting your finger's all sticky...SORRY, next time I'll ask,! grin

I thank all of you for your kind comments as well. smile

Hmmm... rigors tired ... rigor mortis, perhaps wink !!!

If you really wanna' have some "fun", wait 'till tomorrow when it's 30-odd degrees out and sit in the Sub for a while with the windows up and the air off, then strip naked and then go traipsing through that patch. You'll attract more of those little green friends than you ever wanted to see for willing photo subjects eek... they're attracted to sweat as their name would indicate. You might just scare the heck out of Diana and anyone else in the immediate vicinity, mind you shocked!!!

Beauty pics, though... on your property???

I thinks I'll pass on your suggestion! smile

As for the location, along the service road that runs adjacent to #4 & Father Turney Rd. You pass it everyday to and from the Bee's Nest! grin

Johnny, you hit it bang-on, they are definately Birdfoot Trefoil. I just picked up a copy of Peterson Field Guide on Wildflowers!

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
