Too Close for Comfort?

I revisited the ditch in front of Safeway this morning and found some colorful plants, among the last blooms of summer.  Feeling a little sleepy this afternoon, so rather than try to write any natural history notes, I decided to play with cropping.  Closer views of these plants than one ordinarily gets from walking or driving by.  With views this close I identify with the insect visitors.  Close-ups always remind me of a phrase from William Blake - "a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower."


  1. Joe,

    Love the backlit pea, keep it up!



  2. Thanks, Spencer: I love early morning - the light, the fragrance, the lack of busy people, everything about it.
