Do you enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers, bugs, birds, snakes and other curiosities found in the wild?

Every week I will be sharing a photograph of wild flora or fauna in my local area. Which wildflowers grow near where you live?

  1. It’s been a while since I visited, but I always loved your photos. I also love flowers that bees enjoy. Isn’t it interesting that we label things as bad that can most benefit our environment? I mean, without bees we will not survive. All power to wildflowers.
