Minnesota 2015 Part 2

Post by Roanoker » Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:11 pm

Good enough to eat.
Image

If you are interested in tree bark…
Image

You can spot my husband and son way out in the field.
Image

Pink hair.
Image

This looks like a flower convention where the cones prevail.
Image

Grabbing all he can get.
Image

We must be off the beaten path.
Image

Picture inside itself.
Image

Paths, trees and flowers. Who could ask for more?
Image

Bedraggled, but standing tall.
Image

Convention attention shifts to black-eyed susans.
Image

Not to be ignored.

Trees and flowers.
Image

I have a thing for grass and stalks.
Image

This flower can’t decide what it wants to be.
Image

Field of flowers.
Image

Flowers don’t discriminate.
Image

Anyone for purple?
Image

My son, taking a picture with his iPhone. Must have been a flower in there.
Image

Bee…careful!
Image

Showoff.
Image

Spindly, but stalks nonetheless.
Image

This clover bloom stands out.
Image

Another showoff.

The red grass seems to be screaming, “Pick me! Pick Me!”
Image

These daisies did their best to hide in the grass. But I found them.
Image

Trying to get along.
Image

Almost unreal.
Image

A bee does his thing in the middle.
Image

It’s as if they are posing for my camera.
Image

My son, getting a bee shot.
Image

And here is mine.
Image

Can you hear them ring?
Image

Flowers will grow out of anything.
Image

Bad hair day.
Image

Let’s all get together.

We see Canada geese all the time around the lake behind our house. These were spotted in Minnesota, closer to their home.
Image

My son, getting a picture of a cooperating sunflower with his iPhone.
Image

My turn. Hmm. It’s a little buggy.
Image

Odd cluster. I cut around it and did a lens blur on the background. Now it looks almost 3D.
Image

It’s as if they are all thumbing for a ride.
Image

I like the way the trees frame the lake.
Image

It is the next day, 8/10/15, and we are visiting the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Flowers are a big deal here.
Image

Their visitor center looks like a hotel lobby.
Image

In case you want to find your way around...
Image

I like cone flowers.
Image

But they have to share their space.
Image

Love those leaves.
