CATTAIL MARSH, June 1

  

The dry cattails and thistles that I loved to photograph during the winter and spring are lush and green this time of year.  I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of the velvet brown cattails for they have been favorites of mine for as long as I can remember.

I photograph this fencepost everytime I see it and today was no exception.  Interestingly enough, none of the pictures are the same!

   

Even the ponds and marsh itself changes between each visit and I never tire of the view.  Unfortunately my children have and today's excursion was solo.  The girls are holding out for the zoo, but if I never smell another gorilla for the rest of my life I'll die happy.

ROFL about the gorilla part.  I know what you mean after many excursions to the Denver Zoo and best I remember, it wasn't just the gorilla's that smelled.  Eeeww!
These photos are marvelous as usual.  My favorites are the tree with the fence (I love tree pics) and aw heck, I love all of them!!! :)

Gorram it, woman! Every time I drop by here I get more and more jealous of your skill with the camera. Your eye for composition keeps getting better and better.

There is nothing better than Nature`s own beauty. These photos could just as easily have been taken in England!  :-)
