Making up for two weeks

with 21 comments


After I photographed the dead cricket on September 14th, I ended up not taking any more pictures for two weeks—a long time for an inveterate photographer. On September 28th I decided enough was enough, what with botanical fall having been here for some time already. I followed Wells Branch Parkway east out onto the prairie in Pflugerville, and on the still thankfully undeveloped property on the northeast corner of the intersection with 10th Street I photographed some stands of goldenrod (Solidago spp.). I believe there was no breeze, yet the especially dense and chaotic flowering of the plants in this group gives the impression that they were in motion.
