I went for another wander at work when the wildflowers were blooming bright. So many flowers!
I like how these flowers come in three colors. White, light purple, and purple.
Box Elder Bugs at various stages of life. We had a ton of these all over. They get inside the building all the time, and you can even find them inside in the middle of winter.
Old rusted farm equipment in the tall grass.
An old barn set piece in the background.
And now one with the mountains in the background. I’m under the shade of some trees.
I think this one’s better. Mountains, clouds, and you can see all of the toothy arm. Much better composition, but not as many flowers.
The farm equipment has some cool shapes.
Lookie, a bee! They’re hard to get decent shots of. They move around too much.
I love the contrast of fresh living flowers next to old rusted unused equipment.
And a little Box Elder Bug. He’s kind of blurry, but it’s a very nice shadow of the flower around him.
Depth of field! And lichen.
More of the same. I like the wheels.
A row of old workers sitting in flowers as they rest.
This little batch of purple flowers had some fuchsia to it.
The little fake well.
An even darker purple.
Another almost decent picture of a bee. There were a couple little bumbles with red stripes, but I could never catch them with the camera.
Wild carpet rose.
Another blossom on the wild carpet rose. This plant guards the way to my favorite deer trail on the property.
On that hidden deer trail there are these plants with gigantic leaves. My foot is hiding in the bottom of the picture for size comparison.
I think these flowers are related to the white and purple one, but they’re droopy and pink instead of perky and purple. Slightly different, but still pretty.
Deer tracks by tire tracks on the gravel part of the parking lot.
