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.
This beautiful, wet and happy bromelaid was basking away in the mist and drops from the water fountain in the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans. I don't believe I have ever seen prettier bromelaids. Believe me, this photo does not do justice.
In downtown Fredericksburg Texas the flowers are still blooming. There are butterflies, lots of butterflies. We have visited butterfly gardens before, but, seriously, have never seen this many butterflies all in one concentrated area..
At about mile marker 181 (mile markers start from the south and increase in number as you drive north), along the Natchez Trace a "stand" called the French Camp is found. The "stand" was established in 1812, a private school opened in 1822 and that school is still in operation. The gate/arbor was worthy of a photo. Additional photos of this stop and our drive down the Trace can be found on Reflections From the Fence.
I love fungi and mushrooms and all the lichen we find as we walk in the woods. I can barely walk by without taking photos. This specimen, which reminds me of a viola pansy because of the shape, was found along the Natchez Trace when we were exploring the "Old Trace".
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.
