Early Summertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Summertime Dreams — Backyard Wildflower Meadow. Composite of 27 images taken with a Leica SL2 camera and 16-35 mm lens (ISO 400, 16 mm, f/16, 1/125 sec). Raw images processed with Capture One Pro and AutoPano Giga Pro to produce a Tunnel View, Little Planet View, and Mirrorball View. THe files contain 268 gigapixels and can be printed as a 54 x 54 inch (1.37 x 1.37 meter) poster.

So far, I have identified the following types of flowers in this meadow: Lance-leaf Coreopsis, Larkspur/Delphinium, Cornflower/Bachelor Button, Sweet William, Daisy, Black-eyed Susan, Cosmos, Red Poppy, Forget-me-Not, Flax, Moth Mullein, Baby’s Breath, Beardtongue/Foxglove and Lemon-Mint. Last year this meadow was mainly a variety of Sunflowers that hid the lower wildflowers. I mowed everything down in the fall and didn’t plant any new seeds. So everything in the meadow this year must have self seeded. The Sunflowers seeds must have been consumed by the birds, squirrels, mice, and deer.

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer updating images in My Image of the Day Photoblog, and My eBird (with images of nearly 450 bird species). hope post COVID-19 to be a world traveler again. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
