  3. Thanks for your input. I appreciate the feedback. Here is a similar type of wildflower known as Bee Balm or oswego tea.

  5. thanks so much Gale. These are images taken in July. I have not used the camera much since then, but fall is just around the corner and I pln to do a bunch then. I appreciate your taking the time to look and comment. i alway enjoy a good VR VR VR smile :^)
     
  6. Something unusual - at least for me. I like the intricate pattern it draws and - most of all - the delicate hues.
     
  7. Christian,
    I genuinly appreciate your input. Thanks for looking and sharing your thoughts. The delicate hues are one of the main draws for me as well.

    Dave,

    The first one almost remsebles a Passion Flower. Very beautiful.

    I love nature. You do capture it well :>))

    Look foward to tons of foliage images from you beautiful part of the country.
     
  9. I have heard about these flowers since people of Lorraine area (France) use them to perfum candies called with the same name. But I never see one. As Christian has already said, very interesting pattern and delicates hues. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Dave -

    Nice pair of photos here!

    I know the "Bee Balm" version of bergamot - it has a spicy, somewhat citrus-like aroma and beautiful blooms.

    Does the wild version have the same smell?
