Went for a walk this morning (my first this year - yea, energy!) with Jeff, Miki and my camera. Got some pretty images of little blooms (and grasses) in our airpark.....right under our noses! I really like the above image - one of the reasons are the shadows of the stamens on the petals. I feel like adding some inspirational quote on the left side of the image and create a note card from this image.
Here's what I believe is an Indian Paintbrush. I love the bright green tips (stamens?) as a contrast to the orange.
I know, I know, this is technically a weed, but I just loved the way the middle of the flower gone to seed created such a cool pattern! And, the fuzzy head was just so perfect - the wind hadn't gotten to it yet!
This was a grass that was actually pretty small and short. I just loved the reflection of the morning light off the little fronds. It just looked sort of lacey and delicate.
