Wild flowers in August

Milkweed bloom by the end of the driveway, smells glorious and the bees agree.

Milkweed bloom by the end of the driveway, smells glorious and the bees agree. Photographed at 6pm overcast sky, thunder sounding in the not too far distance.

Tansy, yarrow, thistles and milkweed. Playing with the idea of light in photos of wild flowers.

Bees, spiders, beetles, flies, oh my!

Enjoying the un-gardened flowers and seeing how to depict them.

Bull thistle, easily 7 ft tall and very spiky, serious trunk.

The thistles were very interesting because of their size and depth and bobbling bees.

What do you think? This is using my same old Canon PowerShot A710IS  on auto focus – an easy camera to just carry around – I keep on thinking of getting a better camera, but I like not worrying about wrecking it.

I enjoyed playing with outdoor light to see if I could get more depth in the photos. And wildflowers seem more interesting than the garden beauties and they attracted more bugs … cool.
