Coneflowers, Center Stage

Sunday, July 26, 2009

This afternoon my wife and I decided to get out of the house, grab something cold to drink and take a few photos. We ended up downtown near Capitol Lake and Budd Inlet. While we were there we watched a seal playing in the water and doing a little fishing. Turning around and looking the other way, this flower box really caught our eye. It's surprising that anything is blooming as warm as it is right now. You can see the Legislative Building in the background.

    Really nice composition.

    It looks like Washington State takes its architectural cues from Washington DC.

  2. Golly, that is a super shot. The coneflower taking center stage and the ones in front a littly fuzzy and the Capitol blurry also. Nice!! MB

    In a normal lifetime those Purple Cone Flowers would be covered with bees and butterflies but like here, I don't see any butterflies.
