AlpineGarden.jpg
AlpineGarden.jpgAlpine Garden at Logan Pass10 viewsOn the walk from Logan pass up to the Hidden Lake Overlook, the alpine wildflowers were gorgeous even though it was the end of August. These were nicely set off by the waterfalls in the background and the little stream they fed.2 commentsEd Hodgson

appleblossoms.jpgApple Blossom Time4 viewsThere is a little apple tree near one end of the beaver dam that blooms beautifully in early spring each year. This year I tried to get a few photos that put the bloom in context. Here's one I kind of like.Ed Hodgson

ashyclubtail.jpgAshy Clubtail Dragonfly on Rhododendron Blossoms8 viewsWhile most of the early dragonflies zoomed around frantically and eluded my attempts at photography, this mellow fellow took time to smell the flowers and posed nicely for me on our rhododendron bushes.Ed Hodgson

behindbars.jpgBehind Bars5 viewsI was working on photos of the Giant Lobelia and brown -eyed Susans in my wife's garden because I liked the color contrasts. When I sized up this approach I was struck by the appearance of a crowded detention cell and thought it was worth a shot. Ed Hodgson

borage.jpg
borage.jpgBorage7 viewsMy wife has a number of borage plants growing in her herb garden this summer. We find their clusters of sky blue flowers a real treat and this blossom that had fallen onto one of the borage leaves especially caught my eye and begged for a photograph.2 commentsEd Hodgson
buttonbush.jpg
buttonbush.jpgButtonbush4 viewsI thought this buttonbush blossom was particularly well set off for a photograph by its isolation against this dark green leaf.2 commentsEd Hodgson
calicopennant.jpg
calicopennant.jpgCalico Pennant Dragonfly5 viewsThis one was also by Trout Pond in McLean refuge. I used a fill flash to bring out the colors on his wings and thorax and the smallest aperture my lense offers to get enough depth of field to encompass his wingspan and the flowers where he was perched. Shooting against the pond at a shallow angle eliminated issues with distracting background detail.Ed Hodgson

Favorite_-_April2C_2015.jpgFirst Bee - Spring Morning Light14 viewsThe first bee I've seen this spring just finished his visit to a naturalized crocus in our lawn as I aimed my macro lens up-sun and captured the sun shining through the crocus and gleaming on the bee. Too bad the bee wasn't patient enough to stay better positioned in the frame.Ed Hodgson
