And as great as bird photos are...
Nothing beats taking pictures of flowers and fiddling around with them and with editing them.
As much as birds have become a passion, botany is still my love. Flowers and trees and sedges and grasses are just too much fun!
I've seen all of these flowers within the last week laying in strategic places photosynthesizing their little leaves as best as they can while they bring us a fantastic sight and reward pollinators with sweets that could only match the delicious wonders of life like chocolate, ice cream, and cookies.
These are attractive droplets of a negatively impressive reward.
Plants never cease to amaze me. They have so many little things unique about them that make me jealous. I mean - I wish I could make my own food just by chilling in the sunlight! I wish I could trap insects with little goo-drops, or with jaws of death contraptions. I wish I could propagate in many formats... ok maybe that's a streatch.
Regardless, plants are amazing. And its times like today roaming around outside that I'm reminded of how amazing they really are.
