Hope you've enjoyed this little springtime stroll around the park, and that I will see you "out on the trail" sometime this season.

Thanks in advance for any comments, suggestions and critique!

Hi mole,

Another widely varied, educational series, very capably capturing the essence of your surroundings.

Of the Sorrel shots, My traditional side is drawn to #1 for the bokeh, but #3 is also appealing, as I like being able to see the clover in the background -- such an appealing combination of shapes with the flowers -- they both seem to feel "clean and fresh" for some reason. . . probably me just being weird. . .

lovely set mole.

my absolute favorite is the horizontal format shot from the sun in the mist. it just oozes with atmosphere, it is composed well. the mist gives this classic view a unique appeal.

i also like the one with the reflection as well, but it seem a little unnatural since the reflection is brighter than the real sun.

the first flower shot is my pick, i like the dof, i wish the green wasn't in the background, i would have liked it all brown, but you can't always compose it so cleanly. the 2nd is cropped a bit tight for me.

i also like the first of the purple flowers set best too. it has the best dof and gives the flower isolation from the background.

the lead in to the barn from the fence coming out of the bottom right corner is a nice composition.

the oak parasite is a nice fungal image too, i like the perspective.

almost forgot, love the last image too, the lush green reflections. i think you could have framed it even closer for a more abstract look at the greens interacting with the ripples.

well done mole. thanks for bringing Tennessee to my living room

Another magnificent series Mole,

really like the mood in the first 4 shots. Would love to make them but never get up early enough .
The close up of the turtle is stunning, and that fungi looks so not of this world, something that wouldn't be misplaced in any horror scifi.

Keep up the great work

Fascinating selection of unusual plants, well depicted. You never seem to run out of subjects!
