Fall at the Dallas Arboretum

2014.10.10
pixel
Coolest water drop I think I've seen.
pixel
Request landing clearance, area 51.

Dallas is on the migratory path for monarch butterflies and the Arboretum was full of them. This one was trying to hide from me.
pixel
While I was trying to take a shot at a monarch this little fellow landed just a couple of feet in front of me on a bridge.
pixel
Gotta be some kind of lily but I have no idea what kind.
pixel
Mini Hodoos. Don't know where they found these large rocks with the formations on them but they look like something you'd see in Arizona or New Mexico.
pixel
These even more so.
pixel
Always a hard flower to shoot because of it's size and color.
pixel
Dining in the Arboretum at one of the cafes.
pixel
Gourds, both of them even though the large one looks like a gray pumpkin.
pixel
The squirrels and the grackles know a good thing when they see it. They were all over the area where the corn was.

I've seen a lot of stone cairns but here are some pumpkin/gourd cairns. The crew at the Arboretum is very talented but if you don't like theirs, there are plenty of piles to play with and create your own.
pixel
I think his name is Dusty Miller but I haven't been formally introduced.
pixel
Yellow butterfly. This was the only yellow one I saw. I saw a total of 5 different kinds of butterflies, but all but 4 were monarchs.
pixel
One of the monarchs. Dallas has the Discovery Garden at Fair Park where the state fair is held. It has dozens and dozens of different types of butterflies in a large glass room that you can enter and photograph. I've even has some land on me.
pixel
Ferns in the mist. Several times a day a creek area is fogged with water to keep the ferns and moisture loving plants thriving.
pixel
Most people call these squirrels but I call devil rats. Have you any idea what they can do to your attic. My dog tries to come to the rescue though, he usually gets two or so a week.
pixel
Pumpkins and gourds.
pixel
No day at the Arboretum would be complete without a stop at the Lotus pond. While not as many as usual the blossoms that were there were beautiful.
pixel
Water can find it's way into just about anywhere.
pixel
A four gourd cairn with the top one looking like a crown of sorts.
pixel
Five in this stack but it looks like the top one looks like it needed to be tied on.
pixel
Nope, didn't cheat. These were growing together.
pixel
Daisy and friend.
pixel
One of the walkways and decorations around the Arboretum
pixel
The DeGalier house.
pixel
Same, different view.
pixel
Another view with fountain.
pixel
Another monarch.

Most of these were shot at the Dallas Arboretum yesterday, a few two days ago.

karabana What an amazing autumn garden! I've never seen a squirrel (I refer to them as tree rats) doing that in 12, great capture! Nice action in 2. 1 is quite cool & looks like it wasn't taken along with these with the lighting being different.

Yokai Each shot is wonderful !! I think 2 and 24 are standout images.
