i wish i had more gumption.. i've been in a bit of a brain fog these days.. i'll sort it out and hopefully be back to having more inspiration.. no matter what, i never go a day with a stroll or two around my yard and in my woods.. i love this cooler weather..

Thank goodness for your vast knowledge of nature. I have "pokeweed" growing in my yard and not knowing what they were, did some research. Well it turned out that my research was wrong, because the answers I got from my friend "google" was that those berries were sumac berries, which are poisonous. Now that you have posted your photo and described what they were, I am happy to know that they actually are not sumac.

#1 we call in german "Fette Henne" what is translated "fat chicken"  - I have no idea where it got this name from, but it's one of the plants names I can easily remember.  smile

I'm locked into the same place now as well. After my move all my diversity went south. I too need something different...onward!

Stink bus new to me but that nymph is beautifully caught.

To my (admittedly dodgy) eyes it looks like you caught the black berries very sharply indeed. Did you consider a tighter crop?

i like to crop in tight if i have a very, and i mean, super sharp, clear focal point.. maybe i will try it with a macro lens.. :)  thanks

Thanks Sherry. It's a really interesting part of photography - well, a pretty damn fundamental one really - and one where I am continually undermined by the quality of my eyesight. Which isn't great as I am currently shooting a lot with manual lenses :-(

I feel the same way about where I am!
Always a treat, Amiga!
