Kaleidoscope of Color

In the Garden – Kaleidoscope of Color

Spent the morning at Chicago’s Garfield Conservatory. I was greeted by a kaleidoscope of color from the tiles on the Zellij Fountain and continued throughout the different gardens. What a perfect place for macro photography!

Peek-a-Boo

Macro Monday

A moth was trying to hide underneath the petal of tall tickseed but I persisted! I finally had to get down on my knees to get a better view.

Sunflowers – Radiant and Fanciful

It is impossible for me to look at fanciful sunflowers without smiling. These were enjoyed at the Community Garden of Butterfly Meadows in Valparaiso, Indiana.

Do they make you smile?

After the Rain

Morning After the Rain

After some overnight thunderstorms, a dampness hung in the air as I headed out to the trails at the Indiana Dunes National Park. Spent a little bit of time at the garden at Chellberg Farm where the tomatoes are almost ready for picking. From there, I hiked over to the Mnoke Prairie and enjoyed glorious morning dewdrops reflecting the sunshine.

Pause From Buzzing

Taking a Pause From Buzzing Around

A honeybee was busy gathering pollen in downtown Chicago’s Lurie Garden. A leisurely stroll through Millennium Park led me to little bit of nature in the midst of tall buildings in the Windy City.
