Ocupy Wildflowers

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 26 August 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A short break from the smokey sky so I took a slow stroll. These flowers were the only color on the dry plateau. (Sky changed to storm clouds a few hours later.) I put myself and my camera into the wildflower bushes to surround myself, and aimed for the blue sky to enhance them with the only other color around. I saw birds that had golden yellow feathers darting around as one with the wind causing the flowers to dance.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Nature too seems to be sad of the fires... The movment of the flowers is well captured.
Enjoy your monday,

The sunflowers look to be staging an Occupy 'Keep the Roadside Verges' demonstration.

@Ronnie 2¢: Really it is a happy scene to drive across the plateau and approach our development via these sturdy happy things that line the gravel road. Remind me of waving pedestrians at a parade. Makes me grin (but it doesn't take much...)

@franz: Thanks Franz! They are so sturdy, no nonsence returning wild ones that line that gravel road to where we live, waving at me as I drive by.

@Hiro: Yes, and a habitat for little birds with yellow feathers, if you look long at them you will see them.

Very nice. And the fame is welcome.

@Calusarus: Thanks and for mentioning the frame. Sometimes they are such a good addition, a completer, or enhancer. Sometimes not, you know?
