I have a day off today and I decided I had to go outside no matter what! Luckily it was not raining, but there was quite a gusty wind and this made life a little difficult. When you do close-up shots even a small breeze can be a pain as the movement is magnified.
That wasn’t my first attempt at this flower – it kept waggling about in the wind spoiling many shots! This next one is one of the failures … although I kind of like it as you can almost feel the wind.
I saw these pretty little grass flowers and in a brief pause in the wind managed to capture their delicate green feathery beauty.
And finally, the tough old Evening Primrose … still going strong! I am amazed at this plant! You may be able to see that the petals on the left were blowing in the wind but I managed to get a focus on the stamens & stigma in the middle of the flower.
Perhaps there will be a more sunny weather update soon! Since the clocks went back, I am strangely looking forward to cold crisp winter days, and snow and icicles! Brrr.
