Photos of the day, Saturday, July 27, 2013

With the second hike in for the new post-drought season, I’ve taken a new camera to the mountain to see if it’s a “keeper” or whether I’ll simply return it to E-Bay from whence it came.

Although I didn’t get any time to look at the manual before starting the hike, I have a good feeling about it.  More testing to come this weekend.

First I came upon a Tufted Geranium or the Purple wild Geranium



Shot in macro mode – using auto focus.  Not until the last two images did I try the manual focus with the camera.columbine1

Columbine – with great back lighting.

I included the ant in this next image so you can see just how small the flowers are on the Stanley’s  Four O’clock .


Next – Showy Goldeneye
