Here we are again at Sea Pines Forest Preserve, Hilton Heaad, SC. I got down on my belly, with all the bugs and braved the mosquitoes which weren't quite so bad now that I was in the sun. I was snapping away and didn't realize I had photographed a bumblebee's landing. I have entered the photo above into a weekly photographic challenge I just learned about: "Perseptive Perspective". The challenge this week is: Signs of Spring. Click HERE to see other entries.
This was the first nature walk I took at Hilton Head and I did not bring along any bug spray and the mosquitoes were terrible. I love to hike, but the scenery and animals are unlike anything this "northern" girl is used to. Although I now reside in NC, I have yet to experience much of this beautiful part of our country.
Sea Pine's Field of Wildflowers
Paint brush splatters
cover this canvas
texture and pattern
unaware of rules
a "DIY" project,
her focal point scattered,
color scheme varied.
A fool proof education
at everyone's fingertips.

The orange and reds and violets and splashes of pink shouted SPRING! ... although temperature wise, it felt like blazing steamy/hot summer (it was only April).
