waterlilies @ mckee

waterlily and its' reflection--@mckee botanical gardens, vero beach, fl 5/4/12waterlily and its’ reflection–@mckee botanical gardens, vero beach, fl 5/4/12

we found ourselves driving south on us 1 this morning…not really sure how that happened, we were just going out to the bank…but it’s friday, and it’s star wars day (…you know, may the fourth 🙂 ) and i never leave home without the camera, just in case…these things, in the minds of both the man and me, are reason enough to take a little drive…somehow we found ourselves in vero…it has been ages since i’ve been to mckee botanical gardens…the waterlilies are in bloom…so even though we didn’t have tons of time, we made a quick stop…they have the most lovely collection of waterlilies there…this one was especially nice…

usually when i visit the wetlands i’m there to photograph the birds and animals that live there…but it’s hard to ignore the wildflowers…they are surely an easier subject to capture 🙂 …i don’t usually think of them in black and white…but i really like the way this image looks in b&w…it was taken back in late summer…
