I have just spent hours resizing and organizing May 2013 pictures and I am only half way threw the month Grrrr I am very frustrated but I need to keep going 1000's of pictures to do of mushrooms and plants weeds and garden oh some very interesting plants and I have gotten better at my light contrast and definition with white fungi / plant Indian pipe pictures in there somewhere ??

I usually post a thread on that plant or mushroom once a name has been found my fav threads cause other people (you) all offer what you know about that plant / fungi it is very fun for me to organize these and take pictures of what I find in the woods :)

 

So here is a few pictures I was working on this morning to give me more inspiration to keep going :)

and these r not very special I started in May with the spring out door pictures :P wishful thinking

 

but deep summer I have some very cool pictures of plants to share with you all :) I really want to keep going but I give up too easily :( I know some of you will help kick my butt and help me get thew the rest of the year while I am bored this long cold winter thanks in advance friends :)

Those are beautiful! I know you are busy, but annotations would be helpful- I don't recognize any of these by name. (Except the rabbit :biggrin: ).

Here are some of what I was working on this morning ;)
 

IMG_7363.JPG IMG_7364.JPG

This one is (Horse Tail) Equisetum

This is the fertile stalk you can see some spore dust on the tip, if you shake this a whole bunch of spore dust comes out

The bushy plants will come out in a week or so after these stalks pop up

 

IMG_7385.JPG

A close up of a fern unfolding fiddle head from a bracken fern I believe (Pteridium)

 

IMG_7411.JPG

Blueberry flowers finally got a nice picture on sunny days the white flowers are hard to take a picture of them they are usually all washed out with no detail ... I am happy the way this one turned out :)

 

IMG_7470.JPG

This one is Labrador tea Rhododendron groenlandicum I believe that is the one that grows in bogs these are found near cricks small ditches or rivers around here

Here is the orange back to the leaves it is really hairy they are ready for tea when there is orange on the back in fall threw to spring.

Summer it is a silvery color in the new growth which needs to age first to get this orange color to it

IMG_7476.JPG

 

IMG_7522.JPG

Apple blossoms :) While I was planting the garden I heard buzzing humm... there was a humming bird around I looked behind me and wow the tree was full bloom and alive with buzzing bees and humming birds :) beautiful the sun was shining threw the blossoms and I was amazed :)

Those lettuce are super cute. Stew is pretty cute too. I wonder how he tastes, though.
 Thanks for sharing!

The lettuce grew really good in that big pot : ) was able to nibble early cause I started in indoors and took it out durring the warmer part of the day in at night so it grew ahead of what was in the garden making our lettuce patch last a little longer

 

I am not sure how stew tasted he got away ;) we have tons of bunnys around here : ) they stay out of the lettuce tho ;)

 

 

Man it is 5am and I am still in may 3rd day on the 24th but this is a big wild walk day so I have a good 100 or so pictures in this one to go over ... I only resized a hand full of pictures and didnt delete blurry ones so I have 5-10 pictures of the same thing ;) need to pic the best ones and resize cause all my pictures are huge to get the tiny detail if I choose to crop .... I want to quit but I need to find some nice pictures to add i here today cause I didnt find any cool pictures in there yet ;)

 

Here is a new Avatar picture for me to use for now :)

I forget you're in Canada. I look at all your pictures and think they are recent (as in within this month), and that you live closer to the equator. :-P Silly me. thanks for sharing, Wild- those are pretty. I really like the background on the Red Trillium.

As always, your photo essays are a joy to browse. I like them all, (and always learn something as well) but the apple blossoms are my favorite. I can smell them in my mind, and it brings a smile and some good memories.
