Today (28-May-2017) — New Jersey

Several more Red Poppies bloomed as well as some smaller Icelandic Poppies. The Rhododendron flowers are beginning to fad, with lots of pink petals on the ground. I don’t know the ID of the purple, blue, or yellow wildflowers. Any help would be appreciated. The only non-flower picture is one of a carpenter bee drilling a hole in my house.

 


 

Seven-Years Ago (28-May-2010) — Atlantic Ocean

Day 2 of 15. Semester at Sea, Spring 2010 Enrichment Voyage.

The first sunrise on this voyage. One of many reasons I got hooked on taking sunrise and sunset images while at sea.

Ten-Years Ago (28-May-2007) — Colorado

I was about to leave for a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park and saw this brown bird with spots outside the Residence Inn where I was staying in Boulder. I got a couple of pictures, but didn’t know what it was at the time. I finally figured out that it was a Norther Flicker. A woodpecker that feeds on the ground. I then went for a hike in the Longs Peak section of Rocky Mountain National Park. A few images — a squirrel, a small white wildflower, and a purple crocus wildflower. Many more images for another day.
