Autumn Eye Candy

Thursday, September 20, 2012
 An anvil thunderhead catches the evening sunlight.
Looking through my iPhoto library I realized that I had some very nice eye candy images. Here are a few that I collected in recent weeks.

 Macro shot of a past-its-freshness-date purple coneflower.

 Macro shot of daughter Phoebe's eye—she leaves these on every camera in the house.

White hibiscus flower—from the plant along our garage wall that the indigo buntings nested in very late in August.

Glory rays—that's what my Great Aunt Lolly called them—coming from the cloud-covered sun.

This image, taken with my iPhone 4S, looks almost like a painting. The blood moon was rising over the neighbor's pasture and the low-light gives the image a pleasingly grainy feel.

Soon the broad-winged hawks will all be well on their way to South America. I digiscoped this one from our tower using my iPhone.

Another iPhone digiscoping capture of a brown thrasher from the tower.

Streaks from the West, heralding the end of another beautiful August day at Indigo Hill. How I wish I could stay home and never miss another sunrise or sunset!

Tremendous pictures. Such post educate me about the lovely birds. I love to observe the living styles of different birds with my opticron binoculars and try to find some new things about them. But actually find very little time for this in busy life. It is really a blessing to have people like you in this world providing such useful information.

Phoebe is just keeping an eye on you.
Most teens wouldn't bother.
Pretty special kids you've got there Bill.

I love the purple coneflower; especially paired with black eyed susans and shasta daisies.
