In the grouping of the pitcher plants was this flower. I wondered if it acted as a lure attracting insects toward the plant hoping a few would fall into the pitcher part of the plant to be ingested.
As a kid, I was fascinated by the plants that ate flesh. What kid would not be enraptured with a carnivorous plant? One of those grabbing my interest was the pitcher plant. I imagined it to be a beast of a plant. In Cape Breton, I finally saw one live. It was only about 6…
We took a nice walk in a meadow hoping to see moose. No luck. But the area was full of flowers in various states of blooming This was the only flower in the lily pad section in any stage of unleashing it’s beauty into the world.
Ah, the colors of nature. Sometimes the beauty hides a nasty. Thistles protect themselves with thorns. The bees can get in but plant eaters mostly avoid the painful green.
White flowers (daisies?) taken from below. These pictures require either laying in the grass or shooting blind. This one was shot blind along with a few others as I subtly moved the camera.
My favorite flower photo perspective is still from below. On this day, there was no cloud to add interest so I converted it to black and white. I feel like an ant looking up at giant flowers from the land that time forgot.
I do love summer in the city especially along the lake front with the many planted flowers. The light was harsh so the pictures I took with my GoPro were not the best aesthetically. So, I added a little impressionistic filtering and voila, a picture I like.
