Spring Beauties and other spring beauty.....

Still working on my spring pictures.

Today, we have turtles and wildflowers for you!

I always love spotting the "first" turtle in the wild woods every just confirms that Spring really DID arrive!:

My photography instructor told us to find a photo of "texture".
This is one of the finalists, but I did not pick it for my class project.

But I do love the texture of the wisps!:

This wildflower is called "Spring Beauty":

This one is called "Trout Lily":

We saw this very ODD root on a little pond...doesn't it look like a snake?:

More "Spring Beauties":

Trout Lily up close!:

I hope your summer is going wonderfully for you and bringing you joy and happiness!

wow, it does look like a snake and every one of these has lots of texture in it, and all are fantastic, so you must be getting A's in photography school.

The Trout Lily is a beautiful flower and one I have never seen.

I'm catching up. Great texture photos in the last two posts, and I do love the lovely early spring bloomers.

Your photos are stunning. I like the idea of looking for texture in a photo.

Brian Miller said...

that root looks kinda like a monster the moss, we used to have spanish moss in florida...and a cute turtle...

Pat said...

They are beautiful shots. I really like spring because of all the neat flowers that shoot up from nowhere.
