I bought my camera on July 06 2012. Since that day, I've taken thousands of photos. Most of my efforts have concerned pollinators and wildlife. In the process, many flowers and other plants have caught my attention.
Sometimes, the bees or wasps have been too quick for me and the resultant photo is one of a flower. So, I'm making lemonade as the old saying goes.
I will make no effort to categorize or name most things since I am no expert in that field. Hopefully, some of you will answer identification questions that come up.
The first 21 photos were taken on my first day with the camera. Today makes it exactly 3 months since these first shots. I will return to the same gardens today where seed pods will have replaced most of the blooms.
Along with flowers, I will also include some sweeping landscape photos and plants that are not in flower.
I hope you enjoy this photo album. Feel free to insert your own. Thank you: Dale
This concludes submissions representing my first day with a decent camera. There were another 220 that I didn't show. I stopped clicking when the battery died. I'm glad I bought a model with a built in rechargable battery pack.
As the day wore on, I became hungry, so I brought forth these giant juniper berries which I shared with everyone at the park. Now they won't stop following me around. They're outside my window right now !!! An old naked guy who lives in the tool shed is really mad at me.
