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.
