It seems my posting is very sporadic these days.
I am still alive and well and am being kept busy with a variety of things.
Here are a few pictures from a recent photography outing with a friend.
All these pictures,and many more were taken in about a ¾ mile stretch of country road.This is a road that is not travelled a lot and so it is no problem to be wandering around on the road,getting pictures.
The first shot is Swamp Smartweed.
I have read that it is not well liked by the farmers,but I think the flowers are still pretty.
When I am out in the country-side,I am always drawn to the grasses.
The flowers on this grass stem look like a dangly necklace.
I believe this is a Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow.
If my ID is correct,then it is a lifer for me.
Should someone reading this post have a correct ID,I would appreciate hearing it.
Sparrows are difficult to identify,at least some of them.
I loved how this weed was back-lit.
Even a simple weed can be beautiful.
Did I mention that I love the grasses?
Here is another shot to prove that.I think they have such a delicate and almost lacy look.
Thought for today:
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever.
Isaiah 40:8 NIV
