Little Blue Flowers

I was so busy taking multiple photos for a focus stack of this plant that I did not notice that I was kneeling in a patch of poison ivy. Fortunately, I was not affected and got the shot with no ill effects.

I love finding one of the more unique plants of the woods. Although listed as common, I have not come across very many of them in my explorations of the north woods. You can learn more about this plant here.

The Fly!

The weather is finally warming and various signs of spring are showing up in nature, including insects.

While making one last visit to see the pelicans I spotted this fly warming itself on an information plaque.

Frosty Wonderland

This past week week we had a few foggy days with cooler temps which usually creates a frosted wonderland. Although I did not have the chance to really take advantage of the phenomenon, I did capture a few images and went out a couple of days later to try macro photography on what was left of the frost.
