Dried Flowers

One morning this past week I noticed that a lot of the wildflowers along the side of the marsh had begun to dry up and turn brown…I guess it’s just that time of year…

  1. Even in the Sunshine State. Really lovely colours and textures and the ‘gator cameo, made me smile. He really does look like he snuck into your shot with his self-satisfied smile! πŸ˜€

    • He does have sort of an odd look on his face doesn’t he? Almost like he is sick of this big jerk always coming around and pointing something at him. Ha! πŸ˜€
      Glad you enjoyed the photo!

  2. You had me wondering if maybe you were running a fever or something! I am happy to see you are your old self. The flowers are a tad out of focus, BTW. Great capture on the Gator!

    • Well I’m pretty much my old self I guess. πŸ˜‰ Good point about the OOF flowers, I need to work on my focusing and DOF more. Plus it looks like the stupid camera back focused on something. 😦
      Thanks Molly!

    • We are getting to the end of our alligator season. Soon there will be no more gator posts from me, other then some file stuff until Spring. 😦 Will you miss them?! πŸ˜€

      • Funny, but all your photos have almost made them there reptiles almost endearing…. where do they go for off-season?
        (I’ve really been struggling to get WP stuff to load – wondering if it’s just me, or WP?)

        • Well I’m glad if I have made these critters seem more fun then scary. Well…”fun” may not be the best word but you know what I mean. Our guys will mostly hibernate in the swamp area. They usually dig out a nice mud wallow for themselves and kind of relax away the winter. Their metabolism drops very low at this point and they will not eat.
          Come March/April they will be back out and full into eating and mating season by May.
          Although…we can concievably see an isolated indivdual out even in the winter. I have a photo of one in the snow. Not many people have seen such a thing.

  3. So happy that you are taking time to notice the flowers even if they are dried. Keep working on that DOF issue. I am sure you will catch on!
