Nature Sightings/ Nature Notes

Seen on a walk on June 1, 2010

Well, I actually saw much, much more but my pal Zoe, a friend's mini schnauzer whom I was babysitting, was not impressed with my picture taking. However, Zoe was a very good girl to let me take the photo of the dragonfly, don't you think?

Photos starting with the largest and moving clockwise: dragonfly (female common whitetail), grass loaded with pollen (Aaaaa-choo!), bladder campion in flower, purple vetch vine twisting it's way up and around a young staghorn sumac leaf, fox grapes and fox grape leaves.

Love all your bits of leaves and the collage you arranged. Zoe sounds like my kids - "come on, mom."

Wonderful collage, but the dragonfly is the star!

Lindy MacDuff said...

You always create the prettiest collages. Thanks for identifying everything, too.

Patti said...

Cool collage, EG. I also love the dragonfly. Nice of Zoe to let you take the photo.

I'll learn how to create a collage one of these days!

I'm glad Zoe let you catch that fantastic shot of the dragonfly. I liked the variety in your collage.

That dragonfly photograph is a-mazing. WOW. Zoe must be a good assistant when she puts her mind to it. ;)

I'm glad Zoe allowed you to get these pictures. You've made a very wonderful collage.

Such great macro. I could see the intricate lace-like pattern of the dragonfly.

Pretty collection of images on your collage.

Hi that is a nice capture of the dragonfly. Btw our oxalis flower probably measures about 2 to 3 centimetres in diameter.

I have only seen one or two dragonflies so far! Great capture of one. BTW, I like the collage!

Stunning EG.
I always liked the way Sumac starts out. A tight fist at the end of the branch and the POP out it comes. MB

Beautiful collage. I'm glad to know what the fox grape is. We have that here, but I didn't know the name for it.
