Another photo from Olbrich Botanical Gardens. I can’t seem to stay away from those gardens. Though I must admit, the red-winged blackbirds were not very happy to see me. It appears they have nests throughout the rock garden, and when I ventured a bit too close I was rewarded with an angry swooshing at my head. Three swooshes to be exact. Blackbirds aren’t a bit cowardly, I will admit, when they feel their young may be at risk. Glad I was wearing a hat!

    those burnt orange colors are so nice…I love them against the muted greens. I like how the light is hitting the back row of petals showing off a lighter color. Such a beautiful shot!
