Montauk State Park

April 22, 2012  •  1 Comment

These are some photos I took at Montauk State Park today. Pam and I drove down for the day and we meet up with our good friends Brenda and Larry, you can see some of their photos here: http://sweetwatercreekphotography.com/

A special thanks to my Mom and Dad without their help I wouldn’t have been able to take these pictures today.

I don’t know what kind of flowers these are.

These two photos are Bee-Balm. 

 


I don’t know what kind of plant this in but it has a lot of “hairs” around the leaves. If you look at the original photo at 100% you can see them. It was less than two inches tall.

 


This is probably the most twisted tree limb I have ever found. I shot if at f4 you can really see how the depth of field is minimized. Notice the grass on the right side is in focus just like part of the limb.

This is some of the water running out of the “Social Hole” on the spring branch.

I have another photo that Pam thought I staged but I didn’t. For some un-known reason I can’t get it to attach to this blog post. You can go to the gallery to see it.http://petphotokeepsake.zenfolio.com/p201876051/h3309aa0b#h3309aa0b

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

The first flower is Virginia Waterleaf (Hydrophyllum virginianum), second is Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum), the third is Doll's Eyes (Actea pachypoda). The hairy tri-lobed plant is Round-lobed Hepatica (Hepatica americana). The first three are relatively common, at least in N. Illinois, but the Hepatica is quite rare, only found in very rich woodlands.
