Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa)

Friday, June 25th, 2010

I took a drive through Dolans Lake a couple of weeks ago and found lots of wildflowers.  This “Wild Bergamot” was just gorgeous.  The bees and butterflies were lovin’ it!   They are “Fritillary Butterflies” …. these are the “Aphrodite Fritillary” (Speyeria aphrodite)

Fungi …..

wood fungi2 I took this photo in August when I was at Dolans Lake.  It is some kind of Fungi but I don’t have any idea what kind it is.  It was just gorgeous!

I grabbed the little Canon P&S, jumped out of the car and started taking shots  …. Mother was with me and she was just amazed at the beauty of this thing.  Now, I could kick myself for not taking the time to change lenses on the DSLR and getting some decent images.

View this image at the larger size to see how pretty it is.
