Bushes, flowers, you know: The Usual Suspects.

Buttercups in a farm field in Hawley:

I like the tumultuous sky in this one.

An almost invisible flower on a small, woody shrub along route 2:

As is so often the case, I’d stopped to photograph something else (which didn’t work out)  when I saw this tiny fleck of color.

Sorry, I’ve no idea what it is.

Here’s a close-up of the flower spikes of sheep sorrel, Rumex acetosella,  which en mass lends a shin-high red hue to our unmowed fields:

These little buds are about a millimeter across; I always thought they were tiny seeds, until I got Ziggy, my 50mm Sigma macro lens.

I know, “your check is in the mail,” right?

I wish!     😉

On a darker note, here are some yellow pond lilies, a.k.a. bullhead lilies, specifically Naphir variegata:

I found these in a pond in Plainfield.

And that’s all for now.
