Spring Has Sprung in Missouri!

Over the weekend, I put in a lot of time photographing nature … from kayaking with beavers, a river otter, and many species of migrating ducks and geese, to capturing¬† spring, woodland wildflowers that are now emerging and blooming in Missouri. In this post, I am highlighting a few of the many wildflowers I worked with.

This first image is a Honey Bee on a Bluebell flower:

This next image is one of my favorite springtime wildflowers, the Spring Beauty:

And this last image is another favorite of mine, the Dog-eared Violet:

Right now, our local woodlands are becoming brilliantly colored with spring wildflowers. With the peak expected within a week or so, I just set up a Wildflower Workshop for this Saturday. I’ll spend the afternoon working with the small group of participants to capture wildflower images. We’ll cover selecting the best subject, working with the backgrounds, macro photography tips and techniques, and much more. If you live in the west-central part of Missouri and are interested in attending, please let me know. I’m accepting the first four who contact me with confirmed attendance.
