I’ve assembled a collection of my top ten flower photos from the month of March. Selecting just ten was difficult. So, I decided to go with those that caught my eye. If you have been inundated with wildflower photos already, here are more! Not sorry! All Texas wildflowers. Yes, even the Texas Dandelion, although some think of it as a weed.

For the past 4 years, I spent some of my summer at a nearby day camp for kids, which is designed to help the campers develop or expand their appreciation of nature. As the camp photographer, I tried to make myself as inconspicuous as possible while following groups of campers throughout the day capturing candid shots of their daily activities.
I also conducted short classes on nature photography. The point of my presentation is to be responsible nature photographers, respecting nature, and I discuss several ways to capture interesting images rather than just snapshots. Afterward each camper uses a camera outside to explore nature through photographs. The photos showed me how many of the kiddos attempted to apply some of the concepts I had presented; while others had their own ideas about what constituted “interesting” nature shots.
The subjects chosen included ponds with reflections, flowers, and trees–all of which I was expecting. However, I was surprised to see shots of garden hoses, feathers, petrified wood, sunbursts through trees, and the bottom of mushrooms. I realized my concept of a nature photo could use some revision. Thanks for expanding my vision!
