I am so thankful for Lab Valley. I've never lived on a meadow before now, and I am loving having the meadow flowers right outside my door.
We are having an incredible flower year so far. Just down Lab Valley from our house, Shyla ran through the Golden Banner flowers.
Then, she watched my back while I photographed the wild irises. They don't last long so I am trying to enjoy them every single day while they bloom. I took this one with an "artistic" lens which softens everything but the part that is in focus. It's a tough lens to learn to use but I like this image.
As I was photographing an Iris the other day, an insect landed on it, drinking its pollen.
What an incredible time of year! I love living in a meadow where there is so much beauty. I will be sharing more of it as summer unfolds!
