Flora and fauna

I am not especially gifted when it comes to photography (I usually defer to one of my sisters in that department...), but from time to time I will pick up the camera and saunter about the area snapping close-ups of flowers, plants, cats, people, etc.  I did just that the other night and here are a few of the pictures from my exploits.
The reading tree

A field of color 
The clover is so invitingly soft 

Evening Primrose - such a dainty beauty

The moth landed just in time to be in the picture


... I have learned To look on nature, not as in the hour Of thoughtless youth; 
but hearing often-times 
The still, sad music of humanity, Nor harsh, nor grating, though of ample power 
To chasten and subdue. 
William Wordsworth
