For the next several days, Ellie, Max and I are first in Mt. Rainier NP and then in Coeur d'Alene, ID, where our son, Rory, and grandson, Calvin, have moved. While we are in Mt. Rainier NP, we may or may not have Internet service.

Beautiful close-up of this sunflower bud! I remember spotting a similar bud in a recent post of yours and how eye-catching they are. Incredible detail in the cilia!

You may not have internet service at Mt. R. but you will have a ton of photo ops, and I can't wait to see the results. Happy shooting.

having seen the bw version first and this one later, i must say that the colour version is much more in the floral style and does NOT evoke the eerie feelings of the bw version ... on the contrary, this is most harmonious and soothing !
