This image was taken one summer evening. I had spent the day on the pond canoing. As afternoon wore on I noticed clouds starting to move in. So I decided to stay until sunset to see if I could get any good shots. I found a location and set up and waited. I did not have to wait long...as the sunset the sky started to glow. As you can s...ee by the image my decision to stay a little longer payed off.

I spent the afternoon in a swampy meadow. It was muggy and very warm...but the butterflies, Dragonflies and Bees did not mind. Spotted Knapweed and Wild Bergamot could be seen covering the meadow. I took well over 500 images and sweat enough to make my shirt wet, but it was well worth the trip. Will go back in a week to see what else I can find. I would like to go there early in the morning, but it's hard for me to do this...maybe I will try one of these cool mornings. Would be nice to find Dragonflies with dew on them.

I found this species of Orchid growing in my ditch...it is the first time I have never mowed the ditch and I'm glad I decided to let it grow wild. This is a beautiful flower when you get up close to it. I have 11 plants growning and will be taking some more photos of it.
