The Missouri Botanical Garden – September 9, 2015 (#4 The Rest of It)

Place:  Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, Missouri

Date:  September 9, 2015

Time:  1:12 PM – 1:55 PM

This is the last of the photos taken September 9th at the Missouri Botanical Garden.  (Was that an audible sigh of relief I just heard?)  Toward the end of my stay I was looking for things to photograph other than bees and butterflies.

A skipper looking for something good.

 

Purple tomato.  The largest of these and the orange ones in the next photo were about the size of golf balls.

 

 

I’ve said this about zinnia sepals before so I’ll word it a little differently this time.  Pluck off the petals and turn the flower upside down.  Now you have an organic replica of the art deco top of the Chrysler Building in NYC.

 

Rudbeckia.

 

Still sparse but a healthier looking rudbeckia.

 

I’m a fan of symmetry.  It’s what makes the world go round.

 

There was something in the air that day.

 

 

Probably my favorite rose photo in 2015.  Of course I don’t really remember the others.

 

White marble statue of Juno by Carl Nicoli in the Victorian garden.  Pretend she’s waving bye-bye.

 

Thank you for stopping by.

All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.
