Scenic Moment


Copyright Jeffrey Foltice

I found this flower in an Ottawa County, Michigan field yesterday afternoon. I used my Canon 200mm F-2.8L lens to get in close and have nice separation from the green background. (click on this or any of my images to see enlarged more detailed versions)

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.

Pink and White

I ran across this pink and white flower in Muskegon County, Michigan a while ago. It’s fun to look through old photo files and discover a hidden gem. If anyone knows what type of flower this might be, feel free to comment :)

Life Cycle

I found about half the seeds gone on this little flower, which resulted in an interesting pattern. From the image you can see where the seeds are held before the wind eventually pulls them away. I used a shallow depth of field to help the subject separate from distracting background elements.

I found this fungi growing while I went for a walk last Sunday. It had emerged from a tree that had fallen long ago in a local West Michigan forest.

I found this flowering plant as it was being pollinated on a warm July day in Michigan.

Green Glow

I found this fern in a Muskegon, Michigan forest today. It appeared to glow beautifully as the sun lit it up from behind.

I found this fresh teasel growing in Ottawa County, Michigan today. The back lighting effect from the sun with the dark background accentuated the sharp lines and texture of the plant.

Before the Bloom

I believe this to be a type of lily which I found before it’s bloom in Ottawa County, Michigan this week. It will be interesting to come back to see what it looks like after it blossoms. I used a Canon 200mm F-2.8L lens for this shot.

Lupine Plant

The Lupine plant, genus Lupinus in the pea family.

I found these in Muskegon County, Michigan yesterday along with some Karner Blue butterflies. The caterpillars of the Karner Blue feed only on the Lupine and can’t survive without it. Since the habitat for the Lupine has been reduced dramatically, it’s affected the Karner Blue population, which is currently an “at risk” species.
