Another fair entry-a beautiful Widow Skimmer Dragonfly. A very delicate and beautiful dragonfly with it’s unusual coloring. One of my favorites.
This is another photo I entered in competition at our recent county fair. The category was “Plant Life-Natural Environment, non blooming” . It was shot along the Merced River In Yosemite National Park.
This picture was taken near Silver Lake in the Eastern Sierra Nevada in California. Have I mentioned that I love the Easter Sierra Nevada? Have a wonderful day.
This regal heron was posed on an elevated mound for me at the Merced Wildlife Refuge. And the tall dried plant framed him beautifully.
Yosemite in the fall is glorious. I love it there.
We will shortly be approaching my favorite time of the year. I truly love fall with its beautiful colors and cooler temps. And fall in the sierras is spectacular. This was taken near June Lake, Ca. Enjoy and have a wonderful day.
There is a small pond located nearby that offers some wonderful photographic opportunities and except for the occasional vehicle that insists on interrupting me to get to their destination, it is a perfect spot to capture more of Mother Natures beautiful work. Have a wonderful day.
Mother Nature always amazes me with her profound artistry. You can see her paintings everywhere. All you have to do is look.
Lupine’s come in many varieties that are different shades of lavender and purple and sometimes pink but he Harlequin has the most unique coloring with its mix of yellow, pink, lavender and purple. It is not as common or abundant as the ones usually seen growing in the fields of the mid to higher elevations of the Sierra-Nevada so it is always a lovely surprise.
I am blessed to live on a piece of property that can sometimes produce prolific wildflowers. This is an Owl’s clover, a very beautiful and colorful plant. Have a wonderful day.
