I found this tree fungus growing on one of our dog wood trees. It blended in with the bark well, considering how much this type of fungus stands out on other varieties of trees.
The sun was shining on the bark of this cherry tree when I photographed it yesterday morning. The light coming in created a cool effect. It almost looks like a rainforest!
This tiny apple is just beginning to ripen. You can see a little touch of red on the top. I photographed this one on one of our smaller apple trees we planted a couple of years back. It takes new trees a while to start producing. Hopefully we’ll have a crop this year.
Its hard to get flies to wait long enough for you to make their portrait, but luckily I had just enough time to snap a photo of this one sitting on a sunflower leaf before it flew away.
Yesterday afternoon I captured one of my best clover shots ever. Half of its pedals were dead, but the other half were still standing strong. Clovers are beautiful flowers, but you can’t really see their beauty until you look at them up close.
I captured this dandelion growing in the shade of our backyard hedge. It looks so bright and radiant with that beautiful yellow in contrast with the dark shade of the hedge. That blurred yellow spot in the background is a second dandelion.
As I was walking around the lawn yesterday, I discovered this beautiful wildflower growing near our pine trees. I’ve never seen a flower like this before. Its shape closely resembles a star!
