Time to Unwind

During last week’s hike through the woodlands at Clifty Creek CA (south-central Missouri), numerous ferns were actively growing and beginning to unfurl. As the geometry of unfurling ferns has always captured my attention, I took a few breaks from hiking, to capture these beautiful plants: More Clifty Creek images and some new Florida trip images […]

Wheel of Fortune

Last Thursday morning, I was conducting a “workshop shorty” with a student when I came upon this wonderful-looking Blue-eyed Mary wildflower. What caught my eye on this particular flower was the wonderful, “wheel/spoke” composition the flower was exhibiting. Positioning my tripod above the flower, so that I would be shooting straight down, I moved in […]

With just a few Spring Beauties blooming, and my need to move on to some errands that needed to be […]

I spent a good part of the day on Friday, chasing the spring woodland wildflowers near my rural Missouri home. My target species was Bloodroot, but none were found blooming. However, I did find a lot of wildflowers in bloom. The Virginia Bluebells appear to be near or at peak right now, making the woodland […]

A Peek Inside the Bell

When photographing nature, I always look to find “different” ways of photographing something. In this case, I found a Virginia Bluebell wildflower with a clump of flower buds and a single bell open. I was wondering what it would look like, grabbing a capture looking down the bell of the flower. I captured 20 images, […]

Violets, Anyone?

Found a few Common Violet (Viola sororia) wildflowers growing in the nearby woodland a few days ago. Here are a couple of images I captured during my woodland hike: Right now, we’re getting quite a bit of rain. Can’t wait for a lull in the rain so I can get back out to see what […]

Playin’ the Bells

After posting my first-of-year Virginia Bluebell in bloom on Friday, I headed back out to see if the bloom had progressed further. I was pleasantly surprised to find many bluebells in bloom. Here are a few of my favorite images I captured this past Friday in the rural Missouri woodland: With so many brilliant blue […]
