Sunday going to a park

 I just changed my light angle to get a different bloom effect on this dandelion.

 A female Polyphemus moth

 Amish gathering

 Scarlet Tanager

 Tell me what you are going to bring

 A is for ....well let me see
I turned around this picture
It's an "A" now don't you see?
So here is an A for you from me.

 Tiny oxalis blooms. Did you ever chew them? They have a tart citrus flavor.


  1. What a great variety of photos today, Steve. Looks like the sun is shing brightly in Iowa. :)

  2. Looks like Spring has Sprung in your area. Love all of the pictures... Thanks for the "A".... Neat!!!!!

    I'll meet you at the picnic table --and I'll bring some of Betsy's FAMOUS Baked Beans... ha ha

    Love the Scarlet Tanager. Beautiful bird.

  3. Warm Aloha from Waikiki

    Comfort Spiral




  4. I have not yet seen a scarlet tanager, but I did see a cardinal after you last posted a pic and I wished for one, so here goes: wishing for a scarlet tanager to arrive in my yard soon....

  5. Nope never tasted that flower but YES i see the A!!!

    And no the sunglasses don't help ;-)

  6. Wow! You've got some beauties here. The dandelion is great, and I loved seeing your tanagers. Until you told me, though, I wasn't sure if they were Summer Tanagers or Scarlet Tanagers. Either way, they're gorgeous. And the moth is lovely, too.

  7. Lots of lovelies to enjoy on your Sunday in the park. Thanks for sharing them.

  8. I once dreamed of being Amish ... long long ago when I was young and naive. :)

    The simple life appeals to me... but even the simplest of lives turns out its own set of complications, I've come to know.

    I'm coming to your picnic, Steve, bringing broccoli salad! (my mom's recipe) :D

  9. A is for Great selection and variety today. I think I'll bring some potato salad.

  10. That first photo is Brilliant!!! Love it!
    And I learn something new Every time I come here!!

  11. Love all these great images of life!
