Yep, more rudbeckia photos. As I said in a prior post, my garden has mostly rudbeckias and cosmoses so you will see a lot of them either as stand alones or as support for insects.
I don’t know if this real bee or a mimic on this rudbeckia.
Rudbeckia by itself
And another rudbeckia with an unknown insect. I think at one time I knew this insect but after about 20 minutes of searching my photos I gave up trying to figure out what it is. I did see a few photos though that I had forgotten about, and really like, so not a complete waste of time.
One of my favorite rudbeckia poses: little yellow and green fingers reaching around to protect the bud.
Purple coneflower seed head
We took our almost annual family trip to Florida last year and of all the photos I took these are the only three (other than family photos) I kept, and I’m not sure why I kept this first one of the gull. It’s “expression” is very perplexing to me, I can’t put my finger on it.
I don’t know if this is a crane or an egret ore something else. It is unique though with its pirate peg leg.
I used flash on this photo and the one above. The actual sky in the raw files was a dull but bright gray and was hard to expose for detail on the bird. In post I added a new sky to highlight the bird even more.
Thank you for stopping by.
