Abstract Mud

Have you ever really looked at mud? Really looked at it?
I was walking along, and noticed the pattern of cracks, and had to capture a few of them.

After the Rain

Comes the rainbow - I did not even see the second rainbow above the first one till I was processing the captures!
And what about the repeating colours in this stretch of the rainbow?
There was a dramatic sunset, after the rainbow, too!

Mud and Rust

The construction crew lowered the water level in the pond,
and found this scooter.
I took a lot of photos of it, loving the rust and the mud.
I went back the next weekend, when the sun was out,
but it was gone...

Spiderwebs in the Morning Sun

Walking early in the morning,
I spotted spiderwebs adorning a bridge.

I captured two dragonflies this week. The first one was moving, and settled on a blade of grass for a couple minutes, and the other was sitting still when I saw it, and stayed a while.

Wild Sunflowers

There are half a dozen types of wild sunflowers, and I do not have them figured out.
These are the ones that grow around here.
This year, I am fascinated with the buds...

The more common name for jewelweed is spotted touch-me-not, but I like jewelweed better. 
This morning, the flowers were covered with dewdrops which caught the morning sun.

Hollyhock and Bumblebee

I was photographing some hollyhocks against the cloudless sky,
when a bumblebee appeared.
And of course, 
I had to wait for her to come out again...

Gone to Market Part 2

Have you ever looked at lettuce?
Really looked at it?
And how is it different from kale?

Gone to Market, Part 1

I went to the Ottawa Farmers' Market on Sunday,
and it is so much larger than the markets around home!!
I started taking photos of the kale,
and the other produce.
Beans, and beets,
corn, and peppers,
two kinds of them, 
and cherry tomatoes!
And I barely touched the surface of all the produce!!!
I am linking this post with Nature Footstep Blo-Ma,
and will continue the sensory exploration tomorrow...
