Yellow Sungazers

I thought it might be a good idea to kick this year off with some flowers. Yellow flowers, to be precise.

One of the many benefits of camera trapping is that you get a chance to see some wonderful wild flowers.

Over the years I've built up a fair collection, however I am not even going to attempt to identify this lot. I simply don't have the time or expertise to tackle such a daunting task. Luckily, you don't need to know the names to enjoy the show.

I like to snap a quick photo when I run into a new or pretty wild flower. These days I tend to use my cell phone a lot since it has a decent camera and is usually at hand, but most of these were taken by my trusty old "bridge camera".

I don't really see myself as a "good photographer" and definitely don't try to get the most beautiful shot possible. When talking to more "serious" photographer I call myself a "for-the-record-photographer" :) My interests lean towards the record, not the art. I simply enjoy snapping a quick photo in honour of the huge variety of life we are blessed with.

(If you want to see some stunning wild flowers from America, then be sure to drop by RandomTruth's blog over here, or follow the link in the sidebar of this site. He frequently posts some amazing floral displays!)


  1. Good stuff, Henry. Many of those are commonly found in California gardens, too. :) We could definitely do without the Bermuda Buttercup, though - it's a nasty invasive. I fight it in my yard, the parks...

    Keep 'em coming. I bet you have some terrific red flora that the hummingbirds like, too.

  2. Thanks, glad someone enjoyed it :)
