More goosey antics…

What looks like a racing goose is just one trying to clean all those layers of feathers. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

It takes a lot of energy to bath all those goose feathers. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The contrast between the ripple design in the harbor waters and the feathered pattern of the geese seemed to compliment each other. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Natural fears…

Just outside the lion den at Lincoln Park’s Zoo was this scary creature. Nature’s addition to the zoo’s Fall Festival of creepy things! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Among the prairie grasses…

The tall, green stars of the prairies (not to be confused with Blazing Star found on the prairie), the vast expanses of grasses, are reaching their beautiful, golden stage while still upright blowing in the breeze. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Obediant Plant continues to bring color to the ever fading hues on the prairie landscape. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Peeking out through the grasses is a small clump of Japanese Anemone. Not a native species, but a welcome addition in this urban patch of prairie. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg.

Awesome details…

Look closely and you can see the tiny florets changing to berries. The growing season is coming to a close for the year. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The background flower compliments the main subject in this close up photograph of a wonderful cluster of unique beauty. God’s creativeness continues to awe me. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Autumn portrait…

The golden, drying off grasses in the background complement the sunlight filled Hibiscus flower. Our 5 mile walk yesterday through Lincoln Park and it’s Zoo was rich with sights of nature’s wonders. Copyright 2018 Breitberg

Hibiscus blooms warrant a close up look. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Floral crowns…

Often the irregular, abnormal, development is the most remarkable. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

As if this little flower isn’t pretty enough, it grows it’s own crown. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Friendly neighbors…

Naturally living together, the Black Eyed Susan and Aster bloom in the early Autumn providing color and beauty on my morning walks. Each beautiful on their own; their charm is enhanced while blooming amongst each other. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

So similar that we recognize both as perennial flowers; yet each unique. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Same but different…

Graceful,gentle,quiet beauty. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Each flower, each petal different yet the same. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Resilient Autumn bloom. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
