Reminds me of Mary Oliver's poem...isn't that strange that real life brings to mind art! Not at all!

This is such an exciting photo. I'm feeling a bit of voyeurism. My curiosity wonders what type of lense was used here?

Kameshwari, it was a 100mm F2.8 Macro lens, and it is absolutely super for bugs and wildflowers.

I smile
see so much here by the woods
but cannot capture
with my camera
Can I be envious :)
You are the best....

Oh no, is that Goldenrod in bloom?

That it is, my friend, goldenrod in bloom. Most of the solidago here is still in bud, but there are a few early flowering clumps by our gate, good places to find Monarch butterflies, bumbles and grasshoppers.

Wow that is some photo, our goldenrod is blooming as well. The whole hayfield is awash with different flowers/colours.

Time to bale.
