f-stop Friday - Prairie Nymphs




I couldn't seem to pick just one photo today.



I took these macro pictures in New Ulm, Texas. They're Prairie Nymphs, a wild flower member of the Iris family that are native to that area. You probably can't tell it from the photos, but they are only about one inch across. I guess that's why they're called nymphs, huh?

Wishing you a very enjoyable weekend!

Well shoot! I thought I'd run over here and see a photo of Mindy running down a hill ala Laura Ingalls! After all...she's not much bigger than an inch.

Strange how something that looks so delicate is often not. This little whisp of color looks like it would not survive without tender care, but there it is in the prairie doing just fine.
Sometimes people are like that too.
