Scenes from a seasonal marsh.

Scenes from a seasonal marsh. Low areas collect water and form ponds during winter and spring, then it dries out over the summer. All the ground in these photos except on the near side of the logs in the last picture usually spends part of the year underwater.

The lowest part of the preseve is also where the most trees are (presumably because water has more time to soak into the ground there).

Yeah, I realize my explanation for why I’m out here is a bit Farfetch’d, but it’s the truth. You wanna make something of it?

A #swallowtail #butterfly, photographed using the classic technique of desperately following it with the camera and clicking the shutter when I hope it’s pointing vaguely in the right direction to at least catch it in frame and it probably won’t be in focus anyway but with luck it’ll at least be identifiable and…hey, not bad!

(Otherwise I’ve basically given up trying to actually aim at butterflies when they’re flying.)

Another shot of wildflowers from the same hike

Another shot of #wildflowers from the same hike, closer to the parts of the marsh with water. The purple/white flowers are wild radish.

This one works better when viewed at a larger size. I think I like the yellow fiddlenecks shot better because it works at a smaller size too.

I decided to see what I could do with my phone camera, which mostly meant landscapes and plants.

When I parked for a hike at the marsh preserve, I discovered that I hadn’t actually put my camera in my backpack as I’d intended. So I decided to see what I could do with my phone camera, which mostly meant landscapes and plants.
