The following photos were taken on a walk along the railroad tracks in my neighbourhood today.
Row1: Unknown, Viper’s Bugloss, Coreopsis (aka Tickseed)
Row2: Milkweed (open flowers) Milkweed (closed flowers)
The pictures are gorgeous as usual. I sent my friends your ecards and they thought they were so special.
Thanks! You reminded me that I should make some new cards.
I can never get over how beautiful and crisp your pictures turn out… what camera did you use for these?
These are the Nikon D70 with a close-up lens.
For the first one, it’s not easy to tell, but could that be a lunaria? In french, we call those “Monnaie du Pape” (that could be translated into “Pope’s pocket change”) and it makes wonderful dried flowers :)
Anyway, you have a good eye and take very very very nice photographs…
Martine: Thank you! It’s not lunaria but does have similarities. I know I can find it if I just take the time to go through my wildflowers book. But I don’t know what the flowers look like. Only the seed pod.
Your photos delight and inspire me.
