I am continually stunned by the quality of photos that are posted here, but I'm throwing my lame attempts up anyway, LOL! These are all handheld, because my tripod is a heavy monster and has too many adjustments for my short attention span to cope with...so I leave it in a corner to give the spiders a framework for their webs. Last weekend we went camping in west Michigan and were surrounded by these gorgeous butterflies: We also saw this dragonfly over and over: This is one of my favorite daylilies from home (I love the creamy out-of-focus background here): And this is my first sunflower of the year! We never plant sunflowers, but we do fill our bird feeders with black oil sunflower seeds. It's always interesting to see where the sunflowers pop up. This one is actually close to a feeder, but I have some others starting to flower all the way on the other side of the yard.
