Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Peaking Through The Rubber Rabitbrush


Otherwise known as the chrysothamnus nauseosus, this photo was taken on our ride into Canyonlands National Park, Needles District.  I was drawn to the dried winter versions of plants in the desert, trying time and time again to get a photo that showed what I felt was beauty, dried, but beauty.

I decided I liked this photo, that it had promise, loaded it into the photo editor, started cropping, re-sizing, a little contrast and brightness, when I discovered a little surprise, a critter in the top right of the photo.  Gotta say, it is a VERY good thing I did not see it while I was taking the photo, as I am NO fan of  bugs, especially those that look like they might jump or fly at me in a heartbeat, they tend to make my heart beat stop!

These are beautiful, Carol, even dried. Looks like this plant was that critters dinner, but, I am with you, I would have backed off had I seen that guy! Beautiful photo, Carol!
