OK, I get it, wild flowers are not exactly the most macho subject a man can write about but they are one of the most beautiful things a naturalist can photograph. In my travels around the Southwest, I have been lucky enough to view and photograph many different wild flowers, plants in bloom, and colorful fall foliage. I say lucky because the life span of color may only be a few days and your hike may be a few days too late. What follows are my photographs of a few eye catching examples I’ve found in nature. There’s a beautiful planet out there, go photograph it!
