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.
I have been finding some unusual, or at least new to me, colors of petunias this year. Here is another, it is edged in green, almost the same green as the leaves, the center being a hot fushia pink, almost purple.
Place: Yellowstone National Park. Believe these wagons of summer annuals are "protected" this way to keep the elk from eating them. We did not see elk here, but, were told they were thick as flies in this area. In any event, thought this was rather "interesting".
I spied these growing in the wild grasses areas near the Visitors Center at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. They were growing in an area that was being refurbished, they asked you not to walk on the grounds. They were only a few inches tall and the flower itself was 1 to 2 inches in diameter. I wondered if it was not some kind of bulb.
Saw lots of this growing in Arizona and Utah. Never really found out what it was. Was hard to photograph, as the spent flowers are small and any little gust of wind blew them all over and out of focus. MMM, it seems to be rather breezy in Arizona and Utah, a LOT!
I like the star like quality, and the straw like quality.
White at bottom of photo is Big Butt's hood. You might be able to see that there is fencing to the far right of the photo. Question, from one who was experiencing open range for the first time, why have a fence at all if you are going to let them roam on the highway? This was a main road too, heavily traveled. We traveled this road to move further north into Utah, and we just about nailed some of this burger on the hoof when leaving, with Tana in tow.
I have found I am having so much fun with the camera that there are many more photos taken than will fit on my blog, Reflections From the Fence.
I post flora and fauna photos here. One subject a day, a flora and fauna 365 project. I managed to get past the first 365 and started the second year of this daily exercise. I made it till sometime in November of 2011. And, now, Flora and Fauna is just a regular ole blog, posting when I have something to share and the time to post it.
Some posts are wordy, some are wordless. My goal is to make them as wordless as possible. However, if I find something interesting during the posting/research process, I may share, ok, I will probably share. I hope you find the words and photos to be interesting.
Remember, by clicking on the photo, it will open in a new window, usually a larger view of the image, more detail, etc. Please use your back button to return here to Reflection's Flora and Fauna.
Thanks for stopping by.
A favorite photo from Bellingrath Gardens, near Mobile Alabama
Things I love: Family, Grandchildren, Rving, computers (sometimes, but not when they are being bad), family history, yorkies, techy toys like my iToys, photography.
I am all of these, so I write about them all, and more.
