A 2012 retrospective
Yesterday, just after I launched into a series of posts with some pictures from last year that I hadn’t shown before, Nancy at Living the Seasons pointed me to a post on the Scientific American website. There entomologist Alex Wild (what an appropriate last name) asked people to submit links to retrospectives of their nature photography from 2012. Nancy suggested that I might want to participate, so I’ve put together this post containing some of my and your favorite photographs from the year just ended. I was concerned that a few of you will have seen all these before, but then I realized I could add a couple of previously unposted images at the end so there’d be at least something new for everyone.
If you click on the thumbnails below you’ll be taken back to the original posts so you can read about what you’re seeing if you want to (the exception being the newly added pictures at the end, which will just enlarge).
And now for the new old pictures. The first of them shows a standing cypress, Ipomopsis rubra, in northwest Austin on May 7.
The other picture shows Gaillardia pulchella, known as a firewheel or Indian blanket, with its rays strangely askew, also on May 7.
And I hope your eyes aren’t strangely askew after so many pictures.
