Much of last summer, I featured a weekly "Wildflower Wednesday". It was an attempt to learn more about wildflowers. I love to blog about flowers, but I have so much to learn. It is not a subject I can consider myself an expert on. I may be in an Author Blog Challenge, but sooner or later I just have to abandon the prompts and talk about flowers.
Sometimes, my readers teach me more than I teach them. And I have a feeling this post is going to be one of those times.
In a normal year, you would find these wildflowers on the Vestal Rail Trail just about now. The Vestal Rail Trail, a "rails to trails" trail in upstate NY, is one of my favorite places to walk - and to take pictures. But this has been a strange spring, full of early surprises. Over a week ago, I saw chicory and Queen Anne's Lace in bloom. I almost half expect to see goldenrod any day now.
And on May 20, I saw some pretty amazing wildflower sights on the Vestal Rail Trail. Some of these I'm not sure about. One is a complete mystery.
I think this may be wild geranium. But I am not sure. Does anyone know?
If you can identify any of my mystery flowers, please do! (UPDATE: Please see comments for probable identifications of my wildflowers.)
My next goal is to be able to take pictures of things moving: butterflies, bees, and birds. My camera, a Sony, has a long lag between the time I try to snap the picture and the time the picture is actually taken. It is very frustrating. But there must be away around this. Other than the long lag time, I really like this camera.
Do you like to take nature photos?
