Who knows what’s down at the bog?

It’s a still and lonely place.

A bog

A bog

Summer's fruit

Seeding strategy

Nature's leaf arrangement



  1. Wow! You get the most gorgeous colors in your pictures!! I love the colors in the second one especially, it’s like a painting. The fuzzy little milkweed (I guess) seeds ready to fly away are so perfect..

    And the way you got the light shining through the yellow flowers is *stunning*

    So beautiful!

    (Also, I got myself a blog so I can share my pictures and posts with my folks. So this is me, Sara. :D)

  2. Simply beautiful! You’ve photographed things I’ve not seen before in #3 and #5. I’m glad you went to the bog yet didn’t get bogged down. 😛

  3. Who knows what’s down at the bog, you ask? It’s almost Halloween,… perhaps the Bog Monster?

    The light on the threads of silk in the milkweed pod is a great shot!

  4. I think it looks lovely – not so lonely, but a place of solitude. And you still have lovely color, too. Very nice, Montucky.

  5. I wondered what that fourth picture was…. I see from the comments. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a bog before.

  6. Welcome to WordPress, Sara! I’m glad you started a blog!

  7. Tabbie,

    3 is actually a noxious weed (Spurge), but I have to admit it’s pretty. 5 is a small fern cradled by a clump of Oregon Grape, as though Nature specially arranged them.

  8. I’ll have to check down there on Halloween, Cedar! The milkweed threads are nature’s version of fiber optics.

  9. It’s a small place, Bo, but always interesting. Sometimes used by beavers, others by water fowl. The blue is from the sky. We are having a long Indian summer.

  10. This is not much of a bog, Silken, just a small one formed by a tiny spring up off the river a ways, but full of life and heavily used by the critters.

  11. Perfect & Beautiful – it’s in such stillness that we can get intimate with our own soul…

  12. True, Sumedh. That’s something everyone needs and too few seek.
