Purple Flower

This reminds me of a line in a song I really like, “A purple flower came to visit me and landed on my window.” by a rock band called Undercover, on their album Devotion.

This photograph is slightly older. I took this at Quail Hollow in Hartville, Ohio. I also used my awesome Tamron 90mm Macro. I love that macro lens. I saw they made a newer version of it that includes a silent motor housing or technology and image stabilization! Wow!

I’d love to get that new version. It’s so very very hard to get crisp photos from a macro lens without stabilization.

Deciduous Forest

Another great location in Quail Hollow State Park, Ohio. These are deciduous trees. They lose their leaves during part of the year. We most-commonly see this in Fall, when leaves change color and fall from the branches, but this is late August.

Some trees actually lose their leaves during warm or dry seasons to conserve water. You can read more at the Quail Hollow State Park site.

This forest was man-made; the trees were purposefully planted in long rows, many years ago.
