Wild Columbine on Straight out of the Camera Sunday

Today I was was participating in a photography class about Photography in the Wild at the Koffler Scientific reserve at Jokers Hill near to where we live.   We took a three hour hike to photograph things along the trail.   The Wild Columbine or Aquilegia formose is a native plant that prefers a woodland setting to show it off.   I am really impressed with its tubular shaped flower.   More photos that are untouched can be found at Murrieta365.comMurrieta365.com for Straight out of the Camera Sunday.   Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
 Please excuse the poinsetta. I did not ask Blogger to put this here.  Blogger is being a pain in the ........   Is anyone one else have trouble deleting a picture?

Wonderful shot Val, yes blogger has been a pain in the %*#. Hope you get to rest tomorrow after the 3 hour hike. My feet are sore. Take care. J

What great shots, Valerie. Love 'em. I was at work until 7:30, but I re-did Mr. Linky. It was the first time this has happened in over a year and a half.

Beautiful picture. I love Columbine. What a treat a 3 hour hike with a camera and others who are like minded. I am envious!
I have been having trouble getting blogger to allow me to post a picture...oh well...I'm sure they will have it fixed soon.

Hi Val,
Beautiful shot! I've often wondered if I could this to grow in my garden. I think not. Leave it in the wild. Have a great day!
