Gulf Fritillary Butterfly Close-Up

This is from 2007, when I first got my Nikon 105mm Micro glass.

Here’s another photo of the Ottawa River at sunset, this time including a pier and its reflection. There’s some information about the Ottawa River over at Wikipedia.

Brown Damselfly

Chasing damselflies in the evening is much easier than chasing dragonflies in the morning!

Scorpionweed Flowers

Here’s my favorite little purple weed. It grows all along the roadsides in Arizona, but unless you stop to look at some close up, you never see the wonderful spirals of the stems.

At the end of Mom and Charley’s Street, sunset painted the water of the Ottawa River gold. These travelers were making their way downstream.

Early in the morning on my way to the Chalk Pyramids in Kansas, I stopped to admire the scenery, the ancient erosions of the land, and to say hello to the local inhabitants. (Most of them shook their heads and went on their way while muttering “Tourists!”)

Red Fairy Duster

There are usually fairy duster-type flowers in bloom during most of the year in Arizona.

I’m still going through photos from my 2009 trip. I took so many pictures that I got totally overwhelmed. I took this series for a panorama while stopped at the rest area near Springer, New Mexico on Interstate 25.

There are lots of captivating things to photograph (and purchase!) at the Downtown Phoenix Market, especially when you have a Lensbaby to play with.

Taken at the end of Charley’s street, in the same series as Ottowa River Sunset. You can see the same pier on the left, but the poles are not crooked.
