1: This is a Killdeer. He was next to the road in the parking lot I went into to turn around when I was lost earlier today...
2: I liked this as an abstract photo.
3: The flora in the Nicholson's garden continues to amaze me. This hydrangea bush has flowers ranging from pink to blue depending on how acidic the part of the soil it's getting its nutrients from is. As a result, you often get flowers that are blue on one side and pink on the other, like so.
