Simple Shade


Even this gentle and shy yellow rose peaking from the shade has gotten a little sunburn. Or maybe she is blushing because it is so hot today.



Hard to hide this beauty even in the shade.  But their harvest days are short and they find little time to rest.



I decide I have had enough of taking photos in the hot sun and I pull up the green umbrella to rest in the shade.  Ah I see that someone has already reserved their cool spot.

That little frog is adorable! The ones I've seen around here are the color of my mulch and very difficult to shoot.

That rose is luscious, Tabor, and your flowers with the zebra swallowtail in the shade is so inviting. :) I would share the shade umbrella with that bright little buddy. :)

It's as if a spotlight has been put on the subjects without taking away from the rest of the photo. Very nice.
