Just some photos I took while out walking. Anything with drops always gets my attention, even though drops aren’t as rare in Illinois as in Arizona.

I like the shape of these berries and the contrast between the dried leaf on the left and the berries.

Milkweed. What’s not to like? They contrast prickly and soft as well as attracting monarch butterflies. But they do reproduce rather quickly so if you have some, you’ll have to keep pulling up the new ones.

    Even the small things in nature have their own charm. I love my milkweed when it produces seeds.

    Love that milkweed!

  4. Tish Farrell says:

    What a fine selection, Janet – colours, textures, droplets, sun in milkweed. Lovely.

  5. Beautiful captures of the season. All 3 are wonderful!

  6. I love these SO much! I’m all in for macro-anything, but those water droplets on the fallen leaf especially shine. Definitely print worthy.
