  2. Terry, there is always room for one more flower blossom. This photo is exquisite!

    Speaking of flower blossoms, I have a pic on my blog. Don’t know what it is. Looks like a white hibiscus. But it is wild. I’ve only seen it growing in roadside ditches. Takes the heat very well, and also seems to thrive with the abundance of rain we’ve had. Not one of those flowers that bloom and are immediately gone. Blossoms for a long while.

    • I looked at those blossoms on your blog, Iona and made a suggestion, but I really can’t tell what they are. I have a book of wild plants that applies mostly the British Columbia but extends down into this area but it doesn’t include your area. I also use a website located in Washington that has a lot of our local plants in it, but it’s also regional. I left a link on your blog to a site that comes from Florida that might be helpful.

  4. Montucky,… love that shot,… with the water droplets clinging to the yellow petals. I’ve been away so much this summer I’ll never catch up, but come Sept. I’ll be a reagular reader again.

  5. Great detail, it is amazing how much there is to appreciate in a single bloom. Mind boggling when thinking about how many blooms there are out there. I especially like the dew droplets suspended above, and the darker ones on the bottom front petal.

    • It is indeed mind boggling, the number of different plants and variations. I’m sure it’s the same with birds too, although I haven’t tried much photography with them. I cringe when I see the efforts at “managing” nature when the “managers” really have little idea of the total array of life forms that are involved and what all of the inter-relationships are.

    • I keep shooting, Maureen. This winter though I’m going to cull out about half of my photo collection:it’s getting out of hand.

    • It is, Stacey. They are very interesting plants; night-blooming and with quite tall stalks. One of the few wildflowers on which one can use a regular tripod.

  8. Is the darkness in the background real, or just edited?

    • It’s real; deep shadows behind the plant. I don’t have the software to edit in that kind of background.

    • Thanks, Ed. The drops are actually from a light rain that fell during the night. This is one of very few shots that I have been able to take from a tripod.

    • That was fairly early in the morning when the light was still soft and the night’s rain hadn’t yet left the petals.
