Photos of the Day

The sunshine tempted me outside for a walk this afternoon. I wasn't thinking of photography, but of course something caught my eye. For a moment I thought "darn, I didn't bring a camera", but then I remembered I had my iPhone, which I used to take this batch. (I still tweaked them a little in Lightroom.)

There are two places I know of along the trail that have these seeds. I'm not sure what it is or if it's a native plant. Does anyone know?

Getting the ladybug in focus was a fluke. It's what I was trying for, but it would have been hard to manage even with the DSLR, let alone with the iPhone. I was poking at the screen trying to get it to focus on it, but I didn't think it would work! Another good example of the value of trying multiple shots. After all, it doesn't cost anything.

  1. The first shots are of White or Western Clematis with their lovely feathery fruits. The last couple look like they might be Knapweed, but I'm not sure.
