another visit to my high school to photograph the wildflowers and the critters that love them.
this time g and one of his besties were in tow and wanted to see the little creek next door first.
these pretty butterflies were puddling right next to the parking lot and granted me a few photos.
and also this beauty.
the macro lens does NOT take landscapes well, especially not those with moving targets in them.
but oh does it work magic with the lacy flowers.
on a side note, i was complimenting the boy on finally learning to keep his nails trimmed and nonchalantly told me that he's been biting them off at school cuz it's easier and doesn't waste his time. ugh. boys.
i slipped and totally busted it while trying to hop over stinky algae. i still have lovely scabs three weeks later. and yes, charlie, i was indeed wearing flip flops.
boys in the flower field.
tiny spider on flower.
what a treat. proud mommy moment. both boys said i deserved to be in national geographic with this one.
the obsession with queen anne's lace continues.
i apparently just missed this one. i went back a couple times to try to catch it in bloom, but no luck. hmmm. something to look for next year.
