Goldenrods and wildflowers. Always a delight to be in a field of wildflowers. Even the bees didn't bother me.

Love the DOF on the second shot. What lens did you use?

These dreamy surreal images are again putting old Beatles music into my head. Very nice. I really like the last one.

Thank you all for the comments. I am somewhat frustrated that I can't get out to take photos of this autumn, so I keep turning to these local fields where I discovered monarchs abound. I will be blowing up some of these images and presenting them to my newborn niece for her room. I think yellows, pinks, whites and violets will serve nicely.

Someone asked about my lens choice. I used the 50-200, usually @5.6-6.7 for shallow depth of field very prone to lens vibration compared to older manuals). Of course, the key to good close-up images is the careful placement of the elements in relation to the background. And be on the look out for repeating patterns and out of focus shapes, because they can make or break your image, in many cases, especially if they draw attention to themselves when that is not the intention.

I really like the first shot. Would like to see it with the exposure dropped half to 1 stop. The flutterbys are just wonderful.
