A few extra meadow close-ups

Well, I promised a different meadow close-up photo every day from the latter part of July through the end of August. I delivered on that promise. The problem is, however, I still have a few meadow close-ups I wanted to share. So here you go, a few more photos to wrap up my meadow macro photography project. Click on “continue reading” for a few more.

I’m trying to work on Labor Day, but it’s tough with these guys flying around

So I’m sitting here at The Hour office along the Norwalk River trying to get Tuesday’s pages out, but every five minutes one of these guys flies across my view. Love this time of year for Osprey sightings. More on that here.

Drying up flower, the last meadow close-up

With summer coming to an end (sort of), here’s a fitting end to this collection of close-up photographs taken at a meadow property of the Darien Land Trust. The purpose of the photos was to draw attention to the beauty and importance of meadow habitat, which unfortunately continues to be destroyed for development. This leaves the plants and animals that depend on the meadow to seek other homes, or worse, perish. Ultimately some of these species will disappear if the destruction rate continues. Support your local Land Trust or other conservation group.
