Cosmos
Purple-edged cosmos with ants tending their aphids, and some tiny little flying thing way underneath.  I love the center of this flower -- it looks like a miniature bonfire with yellow flames shooting upward.

The View from Hidden Peak

Right outside Salt Lake City. It was suggested that this might make a decent background. Hope so! Here it is at 2880x1800.

New England Aster
Symphyotrichum novae-angliae
We had a nice walk at Hickory Bottoms earlier this week, then stopped by the Cache River Wetlands Center where we found these lovely asters.  (See Photo Details for a Google Map.)  I just love the color!

Tommy and His Toy
Having a young cat around has really perked up the older boys.  After seeing Ming play with his toys Tommy wanted his own.  Ming has Tiger, so we got Lion for Tommy.  He loves it.  Here he is for +CATURDAY!  -- #caturday  is curated by +Cicely Robin Laing and +Shantha Marie Fountain.

Old Church
This is one of the three churches at Dixon Springs State Park (Google Map in Photo Details).  I tried both Nik and OnOne software on this, but ended up liking what I was able to do in Lightroom the best.  NB: Of the three church buildings only one appears to be serviceable; this one is in an obvious state of decay and the third looks better but doesn't have any signs of recent use.  I haven't been able to find much information on their history.  The state has run the park for 70 years and I'm sure they date to before that.

Another Clean Car
After washing the #Camaro  this weekend I decided to do the #Roadster  too.  It's been sitting too much and has gotten dusty, I'm afraid.  Of course, after the bath pictures were in order.  Here's one with a little work in +Nik Collection by Google Silver Efex Pro.

Hey Up, Lads and Lasses
Looks as if everyone is finally awake this morning.  Here's a little something just for you, found painted on an outdoor structure at Hickory Bottoms earlier this week (Google Map in Photo Details).

Blowin' in the Wind
Some of the beautiful, tall (over six feet) grasses at the Henry N. Barkhausen Cache River Wetlands Center.  It requires a bit of patience to keep them in focus and wait for them to briefly pause as they sway in the wind.  Shot with my incredibly versatile Sigma 105.
