A Summer Trip out into the Wilderness: Part FOUR

Today, we continue with my mid-summer trip
out in the woods.

I love it when we just drive out and see what my lens can find!

I love, love flag iris out in the wild!:

And spying butterflies on wildflowers! (Devil's paintbrush!):

 Little ducks in the pond:

Evening Primrose profile:

A trio of them!:


The day we went riding to our usual ponds, there were BUNCHES of these gorgeous
flag iris in bloom everywhere!:
As you can imagine,
I took a bizillion photos of them out there.

Guess what my next blogpost will be of???

Oh my goodness! The ducks, the deer, the primroses! This post could be called "Elizabeth's favorite things!" :)

Andrea said...

I've also been out this weekend just like you, taking photos of whatever is in front of me, and in times like these we see interesting things that we didn't know are very beautiful, most especially when they are captured just like these photos.

Jeanette said...

Sharon Wagner said...

Pretty Primrose. And a daring dragonfly post as well. You always have such an abundance of great shots.

A photographer friend of mine used to take gorgeous close ups of the flag iris- such an exquisite flower. He died too young and your photos brought sweet memories.

Ruth Hiebert said...

You and your camera captured the beauty of nature so well. I enjoyed each shot.

Valerie said...

The fawn has to be favourite... but the flag iris is special too.
