Tiny buds

I like to photograph flowers, especially features that I think people may not have noticed. The small flowers are easy to miss and difficult to photograph. I often find things after the fact that I didn’t notice, like a tiny spider. In this case I’m not sure if I noticed the water droplets.

Allium

Onion / garlic family

Allium, onion/garlic family. This was taken at Rio Bonito, along the Blanco River, during Wimberley Arts Fest. Some flowers wow us by growing in masses, like fields of bluebonnets or fields of blanket flowers. Others are not so spectacular in the large, but very beautiful in their details. There are at least two bugs in this photograph, which of course I did not see when I was taking the picture.

Hibiscus at Mission San Jose

This hibiscus was at Mission San Jose. I have trouble not taking a photograph when I see a nice flower…

White Prickly Poppies, photographed on a light box, processed to bring out its best features, then applied a texture.  I like it both ways — on white and on a texture.

seed pods

I like to photograph plants in all their phases. This one I like because of its shallow focus, the color palette, and the interesting blurred background.
