Mellow Yellow




Another interesting insect found in the butterfly garden, while photographing in mid-October, was this small beetle that was busy moving around the yellow flower: I just LOVE shooting nature in the fall colors, with crisp mornings and lots of end-of-season activities!

One that caught my eye was this image I captured in mid October, at a friend’s butterfly garden near Paola, Kansas.

Daytime Stars … Nighttime Stars




Today’s post comes from the Holliwell Covered Bridge of Madison County, Iowa. During the morning sunrise, I captured this “starburst” as the sun rose from behind the covered bridge: That evening, I returned to the Holliwell bridge to shoot the night skies over the bridge. Capturing 5 individual images, I later processed them together in […]
