nature's textures

Do you notice the different textures in nature?
The delicate yet strong stem of a brown eyed susan against the fence post.
The yellow petals surrounding the dark brown center.
The grain, cracks and knots in the wood post.

Look at the prickly leaves,blossoms and stems of the thistle...
the dew drops on the spider's web
and the old cedar post.

Pine cones and needles and dew on cobwebs.

Delicate webs enveloping leaves, fruit and twigs.

I captured this hummingbird yesterday resting after feeding at the lantana blossoms.
Do you see his 'tongue' sticking out?  I have noticed this before with hummers.
Have you?
Most of the hummingbirds are on their way down south but yesterday there were
one or two flitting about into the early evening.  I don't like to see these and other
summer birds leaving do you?

There are textures in this photo too.  Feathers, wood, and the flowers with leaves that
are a bit rough.

These are just a few things I noticed in some of my recent photos.
Nature has millions of textures.
All we have to do is look closely.

God created this earth and all the beauty it holds for us to enjoy.

I hope you enjoy it this day.

I am joining Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Day Dreamer.




  1. Your photos are beautiful! I love the hummingbird as we don't see them here and I find them fascinating. I also love the fall colors in your blog header..autumn is my favorite season

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  2. You took some wonderful pictures...I was amazed by the humming bird!

  3. Beautiful pictures Mom, as always :) I love the one with the pine cones!

  4. Beautiful pictures and that hummingbird is a beauty

  5. Hi Pamela
    I too enjoy all the textures found in nature. I wonder if the hummingbird's tongue sticking out is a way of cooling off, like a dog would pant.
    Great photos, the first one is my favourite for colour and texture.

  6. Beautiful contrasts! I hope your busy week is going well!

  7. Pamela
    Are these current photos? I just can't believe you still have such beautiful flowers yet! Mine have been dead for so... long. All but a few petunias and geraniums.
    I've only got one hummer visiting occasionally now. I do think they're flying south alright.
    Enjoyed my visit-as usual!

  8. Great pictures. That black-eyed Susan looks perfect.

  9. Such detail in your photos, love the grain of the wood and the tiny hummingbird taking a rest from his feast. It is hard to think of summer ending all too soon this year. I've already seen geese heading south, and wanted to ask them to turn around!

  10. Beautiful photos and the textures of the Black-eyed Susan is my favorite these are our State Flower in Maryland Love them very cool with the wood!

  11. Stunning photos, and how lucky you were to capture the hummingbird. Nature is a wonderful subject.

  12. Great shots Pamela. Looks like we both had yellow sunny flowers in our view finders this week! Thanks for sharing,,,love the little hummingbird too.

  13. Hi Pamela. Your images are wonderful and I too am a texture person in nature. I love to see the contrasts and shapes.


  14. It's wonderful to see your beautiful photography. You definitely have an eye for beauty. No, I don't like to see the birds leaving, but we still have a few hummers flitting about at the various hanging plants and at the morning glories. Yes, I do notice textures. I think at my age that I notice more than I did as a younger person. Thankfully. There's so much to see and enjoy.

  15. This year we missed seeing any hummingbirds, late spring and all....but there is always next year.

    You have shared some amazing shots with us, thank you.

  16. Great shots!! I love the old post and the hummingbird tongue.

    Hope you're enjoying the same late summer weather as we are!

  17. Hi Pamela,
    All such lovely photos!! The hummingbird is an amazing photo, so crisp, ain't he sweet!! I am loving the webs, love the dew drops!!!

  18. Lovely post Pamela. The spider web is incredible! Your new header pics are beautiful. I really want some of those white pumpkins...I'm on the look out!

  19. For those who might be wondering, our flowers are still blooming beautifully. The first 2 photos were taken 2 weeks ago. Pamela

  20. Thanks for the tip on the woven placemats, Pamela. I will have to check Dollerama this week.
    Your photos are lovely. The web one is beautiful and creepy at the same time (it reminds me of when my sister and I were young, playing in the forest behind our home at the time, and the trees were just full of caterpillars and the web thingies.)

  21. Gorgeous, all. You have such a good eye.

  22. Autumn, a great time to get out with the camera. So much color and the sky in the afternoon on a sunny day, yep that's a great day.
