It’s back to work tomorrow morning. I know I have a ton of comments to respond to as well as your posts to comment on and I will catch up. But this morning was my last “free” morning for a while and the new camera was itching to do its thing….which it did.
So the luck part. Every once in a while you walk into a meadow and your perfect subject calls out “Hey, you…over here!”. That’s just what happened today as I came out of the pine woods into the wet meadow of Lawrence Swamp hoping for a few Grass Pinks. As it turned out there were several but the first was the prize.
Quite often I find that when there are several blooms opened one or two have small blemishes but there were none on this. It was quite fresh and dewy. I was excited that it displayed four different profiles giving a nice view of its varied features. I guess a possible improvement would have been the upper bud opened and giving a view of the backside.
