Getting back to taking local pictures

with 35 comments

From July 16th through August 16th I took not a single nature photograph. I hadn’t planned a pause, that’s just what happened. On August 17th I felt the urge to take pictures again, so I did, going out onto the Blackland Prairie in northeast Austin. The first thing that caught my attention was this gloriously backlit partridge pea flower (Chamaecrista fasciculata). The red tints at the base of the petals are normal for this species.
