I would have been happy to find this first shot in someone’s well-tended garden, so I was really surprised to find this flower in the middle of a weed patch at the edge of the sidewalk looking just as healthy as you please.
The next picture, however, was taken in someone’s garden, as were the remainder of the floral shots that will appear in the mosaic that is made up of the rest of the shots from that little day-trip that I somehow failed to get entered in here in it’s actual turn. Oh well, better late than never.
This next shot is what I believe is known as a Stellar Jay here on the West Coast, and I was lucky enough to catch this shot of him on my way home that night.
And finally, as the perfect capper to a great day, it turned out I was to be treated to an event that only occurs during the clearest of atmospheric conditions. When the weather is just right, when I look out my seventh-floor kitchen window, in the south-east, I am treated to a beautiful view of Mt. Baker, over in Washington State, in the good old U. S. of A. On those evenings, with the aid of my 200mm lens, it looks something like this. So for now, everybody take care, stay healthy, and we’ll see you next time.
