I’ve only seen these orange flowers in one area, on Reeve Blvd near Ship Creek. Google wasn’t any help in finding a name for them.
I really need a 105mm macro for these shots. Donations accepted.
Relax, I’m just taking a picture of them.
This Bald Eagle was circling over the ducks and geese.
A Canadian Tiger Swallowtail butterfly. It was very windy too, only a few pics turned out.
More pics soon!

Ok, it’s not my best bee pic but I liked how fluffy the bee looked.
It’s overexposed but I liked the starburst pattern.
This one is nice and clear.
And this one is not.
Trying to get two droplets in one pic.
I like the starbursts on this one too.
You can see the sun in this one. That sap sticking out of this looks strange.
This one looks most unusual. Almost like an egg.
And now for the creepy pics:
Here’s looking at you!
Creepy spider and creepy shadow! Score!!
I could’ve had a moose pic but it was hiding too much, and I didn’t have my camera when I saw a fox, and the blue jays were too fast for me, the bald eagle was too far from me, and the salmon wouldn’t pose for me. But maybe next time….
Anyways, that’s it for now. Place your vote for best pic!

Standard blather, click for high resolution image.
I did a night time long exposure with the aperture set at f32. The star effect on the lights are natural. The shorter exposures didn’t produce them. Must do some research on this phenomenon. Also, the moon was a real cool orangish-red and the long exposure over-exposed it.
It’s not a bee but it sure has some similarities. Bee wannabe?
One of these days I’ll learn the names of the things I take pics of! So for now, I’ll just title this ‘Red Flower’. Original, eh?
I tell ya, if I got any closer I’d be on the other side. I swear I hit its tail with my lens as I was trying to get this shot. Notice the texture on the eyes? Yes, it’s mostly blurry. I wanted to close the aperture some more but the sun was setting and the light wasn’t that strong.
This one was up high in a tree. I had to aim high (Air Force pun intended) and hope I had it framed and the auto-focus worked.

Click to see full sized!
Some sort of moth thingy. Small, white, and hard to get near too.
Same type but a rare shot of its wings open.
Name that spider… it’s a daddy longleg.
It’s another one of them blue dragonfly’s but the eyes look different- clear.
Some grasshopper thingy.
Same thing, different angle.
And can you guess what that is?
It’s one of these, from this:
It’s a rare blurry bee with a cool focused tongue thingy.
A hungry moose.
And something my oldest son would do to his car:
Hope you enjoyed this batch! Leave comments, throw money or something.

Can you hear the fly saying ‘Help me!”?
Palin Fever? Sounds hot, eh?
