I was on an early morning walk when I crossed over an irrigation canal and found these Milkweed flowers growing on the banks. Although these wildflowers are common in parts of Colorado, I don’t think I’ve ever seen them around here before. I was impressed by their round clusters and starburst buds.
Sometimes people walk by and look at me like I’m wierd while I’m taking pictures. Others are suspicious of someone with a camera and a zoom lens. Still others are simply interested and crane their necks to try and see what it is you are seeing. Most people just walk right by things of beauty and wonder without ever observing them. I think everyone would do well to walk around in the early morning with a camera (even a phone) and try to capture observations they normally wouldn’t make.
