  3. What a nice post Gail, and wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving.I thought of Shooting Star as more a spring plant, did this come up because of the warm fall? I shot a series of dried prairie flowers with backlight from the sun the other day.They will have to hold me over until spring, although I get cut flowers peridically to cheer up the house.

    They are always very much appreciated, but especially so on this chilly windy, showery fall morning. The sun is peeking through every so often to brighten our spirits though :)

I am thankful that you can crawl around on the ground and get those amazing shots of flowers, and bumbles, and trees, and sky.
