The flowerbed has some new bloomers in it today. These yellow flowers just started blooming the other day, and now that the sunshine has returned it was photograph time. I also got these tiny little guys too, and I have no idea what any of them are called. I know, love to shoot them with the camera, but not even close to having a green thumb.
The sad story about these plants, the yellow flowers, was that when I first moved here, I did not know where or what was planted here, so when it came time to mowing and trimming, I just went ahead and cleared everything in this section of the property. It was not until late August that I noticed a few of these long leaf plants shooting from the grass that was all around in this field. I actually checked Google Earth’s Street View, and saw that these were not bull-rushes, or swamp-weed, but actual flowers. So this year I painstakingly made sure I did not trim, or tilled, anywhere near this area before I knew where they were growing. I got an awesome shot just as a small area was light up by the Sun. These grow right by the small creak beside my home.
And these tiny little guys, I have thousands of them also growing in the flowerbed right by my driveway. This one is about 6mm in diameter. I took this image using my 30mm Macro lens, with a minimum focus distance of about 5mm. This lens has a ratio of 1:1 image size. I like to get right up and close to flowers. LOL!
