Beautiful shots! It's such a tragedy to see what those wildfires are doing.

Love the vivid colors, the yellows really grab my attention. Beautiful captures.

Brilliant work! Liking the contrast of colors of the first. Who needs a microscope when they can just check out your shots?

Such clarity and detail. You must have a very steady hand ... Beautiful, each and every one.

Critters and flowers, great combination. You found some beauties. I think the thistle is my favorite. I always try to get thistle shots, but this year I'm having trouble find any.
