Flurries.....

used the term flurry the other day to describe something...and since then I cannot get it out of my mind totally. So, out at the strip pits the other day while I was looking through my camera lens trying to decide what kind of water fowl these were, they took flight and I snapped a photo. It isn't the greatest but I like the feel of action that it gives. And I love the yellow in the background.
These yellow flowers are every place you look...I think they are a type of coreopsis...but please feel free to correct me. I was hoping to find butterflies or dragonflies on my last vist but all that seemed to be stirring were some bee/bee type insects. I saw one dragonfly and that was it.
Anyway, the flowers blow in the wind till it is near impossible to get a really good shot of them. That and the fact that I just cannot seem to capture their full beauty no matter what.
And every time I see them, I think of a song by Coldplay and wonder if these yellow flowers everywhere are God's version of the song Yellow...

That is a great shot to illustrate motion, the ducks are indeed a flurry of motion. Those look like coreopsis to me, too, but I'm sure no expert.

The yellow flowers really are pretty right now. There are just so many of them! Must be making the finches happy. I like your flurry of ducks :-)

I remember in Kansas the wind would blow the sunflowers around so much it could be difficult to capture them, so I sympathize. But really, these look like a carpet.
