I noticed these two cute little guys relaxing in the shade of our backyard one afternoon shortly before we made our most recent move. I will post more about the move on my other blog Artistic Composition.
Then they took off and the game was on. Much to my delight it appeared these two were playing a very fun game of tag.
I will miss the antics of the many rabbits that visited our backyard, but I have a feeling there will be many different critters roaming near our new home.
Last week we had a lone visitor in our back yard. This pretty flower popped up and after a bit of research I discovered this is the Eleanor Roosevelt Iris.
I checked on it every day and finally it began to open.
Just look at the gorgeous color!
With the sun shining on the petals these macro's look more chartreuse than purple but oh my it still a beautiful flower, and the detail in it's beard just fantastic.
Unfortunately the end of the week got busy and I didn't get a chance to take more pictures until today. I headed out figuring that I would get some great shots as surely the second bud must be open by now. Much to my sorrow this is what it looked like when I went out to photograph it this morning.
Not sure if I waiting too long or if maybe the sever thunderstorms we had the last two days just ruined this beautiful flower. Oh well, next time I will pay closer attention.
