A flower I have never noticed before....

Roger wanted to get out and go for a drive today...so we headed south. We ended up at some more strip pits...some were in the process of being reclaimed. Others were just beautiful. We had our rods with us and actually stopped and threw our line in for a few minutes....Roger caught a real nice bluegill. We didn't stay long, but if I had had a zebco, with bait and bobber, I could have stayed at this one place all day. Except Roger wanted to explore the area.
I am not sure how long we drove around this area, but am sure we only saw a few of the strip pits. We need to actually plan some of the days like this and leave really early...we left around 9:30 this morn, and it is at least an hour's drive down there.

And on top of that, there are the stops we make for me to take pictures. I guess I need to go and not take out my camera till we get there. That would give us more time....

Anyway, I noticed this flower today. I don't know if I have seen it before or not, but I think it is really beautiful.

Rose: Oh no, not take the camera, are you kidding. You must keep you camera by your side to show the beauty of the area.

Oh, the camera is glued to my hip. You never know what you find out there!!!

I agree...keep that camera poised and ready at all times! Leave earlier to have more time at the strip pits! I'm full of advice when I don't have to be the one getting up extra early! :-) A beautiful flower, by the way.

That's a lovley little burst of yellow. I am glad for your wonderful photos that zero in on these little gems that I might so easy walk by without stopping and appreciating the details.

You are so funny. Yes, it's a beautiful flower and you made a great photograph. And yes, you should take your camera out and take a photo of anything you see that is interesting...and then whenever you get to the strip pits, take as many photos as you want there, too.

And next time, bring your Zebco with bait and bobber! Why should Roger have all the fun?

Jacob: I had my ultra light so I did fish. I just would have liked to have had live bait. Seems like I seldom go fishing, and it is very rare for me to fish with worms or crickets.

Those are really beautiful!

I see those flowers around the wetlands, but I don't know what they are. They are very attractive and seem to like wet areas.
