A Taste of the Sun

I walked past this flower, but its glow caught the corner of my eye and I went back to investigate. It was beautifully illuminated by the sun. I decided to use my Canon 50mm F-2.5 lens to reveal the details and vibrant colors of the flower, including orange, yellow, green and pink.

Balancing Act

I found this duck relaxing on the railing of a bridge at a local wetland a few days ago. It decided to stretch its wings one at a time while balancing on the opposite leg. I caught the moment before it decided to fly to the water to swim.

Hunting Mosquitos

I found this damselfly perched on a leaf and ready to fly as it was waiting for its prey to get in range. It seemed to be hunting mosquitos. It won’t go hungry anytime soon because this has been a very bad year for mosquitos. (Click on this or any of my other images to see an enlarged more detailed view)

I found this white flower growing near an Ottawa County, Michigan field today. The white flower glowed with purity as the sunshine found it.

A Scarce Plant – Indian Pipe

I photographed this grouping of Indian Pipe plant today in Southwest Michigan. This plant is known to be generally scarce or rare in occurrence and was the first time I’ve seen it myself. This white plant does not contain chlorophyll. Being a parasitic plant, it derives its energy from fungi hosts. They flower from summer through early Autumn.

 

Standing Watch

I found this Great Blue Heron today watching for prey over a local pond. Fish are among its favorite foods along with frogs. Both are in abundance at the pond it was searching.

 

 

Spectacle in the Air

I was happy to get very close to this Great Blue Heron today as it was flying in a local wetland area. I saw three more nearby, but this was my favorite flight photo from today. (click on this or any of my images to see an enlarged more detailed version)

Peace Among the Green

The waters of a local pond reflected the surrounding green foliage as I found this duck floating peacefully among lily pads today.

A Unique Look

This Cedar Waxwing had a look quite different from its companions, lol. With the daring hairstyle and at first glance the appearance of sunglasses, a statement of individuality was being made :)
