Last month I posted about morning frost and shared a few photos. A month later I got out again to reprise those pictures and wanted to share them as well.
November seems to be a good month for shooting frost and dew. This year was no exception. A few weeks ago we had the fortunate combination of freezing temperatures and moisture that yielded several mornings with picturesque frost. After walking the dogs I headed back out with the camera and tripod and set to looking for photogenic leaves.
I haven't done much photography lately (too much tennis and work!) but we recently made our annual Bismarck trip, which usually yields a few good shots. Along with many monarch butterfly caterpillars, this red milkweed beetle was hanging out in my mother's milkweed garden.
Flower photography seems to be a rite of passage for aspiring nature photographers and I was (and am) one of them. Of course, my goal is always to find a different angle or approach to make a more interesting shot than the billions of other "pretty flower" pictures out there. Against those odds, you're not going to succeed much, but it's fun trying.
Every year we go to my sister-in-law's house out in the country for food and fireworks (and a battle with mosquitoes). This year Marly and I took our camera gear along with the hopes of doing a little nature photography. That's a weird thing to some people.
