You know, I've always just seen the "wild Florida" part of the state as one big mass of scrubs, sea grapes, and pines...but I was, and have been recently, (over the past year of occasionally hiking with my husband) amazed at the beautiful flowers, fungi and even wildlife and insects, shells, etc. that I have come upon. I think it has been something that has happened for me since the advent of my digital camera. That is so sad. Why couldn't I see all of this before? Now, I find, photograph, and come home and watch my cameras memory card on my daughter's Wii, in a slideshow. It is so easy now to see them in that large format on my TV screen. I can really see when my picture is REALLY out of focus, too, and go ahead and delete it right then. Well, as soon as I get it back into my camera that is (I can't do it on the Wii). I am grateful to my digital camera for this change in me. I think I may have to make a habit of going on his weekly hikes with him now. I slow him down a lot, but hopefully he will let me tag along! These are some of the wildflowers I shot during our time at Jonathan Dickenson State Park last weekend. What an array. Sorry, I know not names...and for now, that is OK with me, because I have been having a very busy, hectic week at work, and can hardly think past that at this point. Enjoy!
