Look Up

Floral, Daisy, Macro

It is a contest with no winner… which is my favorite subject, dandelions or daisies. My answer will change depending on how good that last capture of either turned out. Today, I would have to answer daisy…

Floral, Daisy

Oh, you might have survived this year’s dandelion phase but now the daisies are here!

Mid-morning yesterday I drove over to the Mohawk River trail parking area in the Griffiss Industrial Park to explore any new blossoms. I had spotted some new additions while driving back from the grocery store Friday evening and wanted to get out of the apartment before the weather turned. Much to my surprise, one whole bank along the trail was covered in daisies. I will apologize now…

Dew

Canal Trail, Oriskany, NY

There was an added bonus to my decision about re-visiting old locations over the weekend, I found a tree full of blossoms. Around the parking area for the Canal Trail near Oriskany, NY there were flowering bushes and trees. The trees especially had wonderfully colored blossoms. It didn’t hurt that the dew was quite heavy that morning, adding to the macros I captured.

Speak to Me

Floral

I’m back to the wildflowers I found at the cemetery. It always amazes me the subtle color differences among the various “patches” of flowers. I feel like every row I walk down has a new group trying to stand out from the others. I guess the flowers are not so different from everyone else…

Muscari

Floral

My trip to the cemetery the other day was very fruitful, photographically, so why not an image that resembles grapes. I’ve posted a few images of these little wildflowers before. The image does nothing the relay their actual size, which, is quit small. A large bloom could be 1.5 – 2″ in height.

Years ago when I first found these little gems I did think they looked like grapes. A quick search on the internet revealed the following:

Muscari is a genus of perennial bulbous plants native to Eurasia that produce spikes of dense, most commonly blue, urn-shaped flowers resembling bunches of grapes in the spring. The common name for the genus is grape hyacinth, but they should not be confused with hyacinths.

I am admittedly clueless when it comes to flowers but I do know what I like to photograph. Each year I can’t wait for these little guys to bloom and the section of the cemetery where they sprout up is starting to get crowded. I’m hoping for a little sun today so I can return to see if any others would like their portrait captured…
