When you have the camera

A few days ago I was out at the pond taking some pictures of dragonflies and decided to take a walk around just to see what else might be interesting. Although the time of massive spring blooming has generally passed here there are still plenty of opportunities to capture an interesting picture here and there.

As you can see along with summer come the wild blackberries. If we are lucky enough we will have enough for a pie or two.

The crape myrtles are on the verge of blooming here. These buds appear ready to burst. I guess I will have to keep an eye on them for some new pictures soon.

Even the lowly touch-me-not vine (or 'humble plant') was starting to bloom. The slightest touch will often cause the fern-like leaves to fold up as they do at night. It's normally only temporary, of course.

The next time you have that camera handy at the family reunion, on a trip, or perhaps just waiting in a parking lot for a spouse/friend you should look around and try taking a few pictures of the smaller things in the world that surrounds you. You might be surprised what you come up with.
