Summer Flowers

At a recent visit to the local public library, I was impressed with the variety and splendor of their flower display. Initially chasing butterflies, I changed my focus over to the flowers themselves. When done with that, I wondered if they had more at the city hall. I was not disappointed and found even more varieties. Beautiful flowers on a beautiful summer day. I have many more, but am saving them for a cold, wintery day to go through!

Waterskiing - 2014 Malibu Open - Milwaukee

Was great to catch the prelims of this fantastic sport this past weekend held just off downtown Milwaukee. Skiers from all over the world. They go so fast, the photos are nice in that they capture the intensity and physicality of this sport that you miss in person. Click a photo to view full screen.

Green Heron Yoga

I had just finished a shot nature walk at Grobschmidt Park in Franklin, WI and was sitting in the car, going over the shots I had taken. Mostly wild flowers, nothing special, when I heard a sharp "Kyawk!!" to my left. Lo and behold, a Green Heron had just parked in a dead tree across the road, right next to the lake.
For 20 minutes he put on a great show of his yoga workout.
