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 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!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
