  3. Very beautiful! I always love it that you keep such a watchful eye on nature. I think that is really special Sandy. Life seems to go so fast for so many people, that I find it refreshing when someone soaks in the gifts nature so richly gives us. Thanks for sharing that with us. Beautiful. Your photography is really good as well.

  35. you had especially nice light and subjects I wish I was like the poppy-- I try to put my best foot forward even when tired but oft times I fail miserably

  36. Nice shots. My occasional problem with taking photographs of flowers is that my shadow falls on part of the picture. Yours didn't. Nice one,

  45. Outstanding!! Beautiful shots!

  46. the wildflower photo reminds me (go figure) of a wedding. The small white blossoms I guess are what does that. But the bright colors, the wildness of it appeal so much to me.

  47. I reckon your shot of the ``tired'' poppy is wonderful.
