Flowers on the Parkway

Here are some pictures of plants that I would normally just zoom right by. This trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway I took the time to stop and get out of the car to take macro snapshots.

Black Eyed Susan with Some Unknown Butterfly


Tawny Daylily

Common Yarrow


Goldenrod

Deptford Pink

I certainly wouldn't mind a garden full of these - if I only had the space and the sun for them.

Beautiful. I am even more envious of your macro lens!

I love wild flowers and how pretty they are. Beautiful snapshots, Karen. Thank you :-)

Nothing you touch with your camera could be called common.

DW: That's what I love about my Panasonic FZ 35. It has a wonderful macro function without having to change out the lense.

Anyes: Thank you. I'm now noticing them more often and trying to figure out how to pull off the road to take more pictures without getting run over.

Jane: I'm glad you and I posted the yarrow pictures. I would've never known that they came in different colors without your blog.
