paula contreras10,284There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00303  
Bette Kauffman25,850And it won't be so cold in December, right? Well, regardless, +Bette Kauffman is coming to town--God willing and some nut doesn't set fire to the infrastructure again! So it's photowalk time. Calling all Chicago and vicinity photogs. Hope you can join me. We'll gather at the Bean for the obligatory group shot there, and I want to check out what has transpired with the construction that was underway in Millenium Park last time I was there. After that, I'm easy. We can go anywhere y'all are inspired to go, including back up to this beach where Tom and I were freezing our tushes back in March 2013.It really was cold that day....2014-12-20 17:00:002  
Bette Kauffman25,850@115907986192399529711 is coming to Chicago! Will arrive some time Friday Sept. 26 and be ready for a photowalk Saturday. I have us meeting at The Bean, but if anyone has a better idea, I'm game. I'll be staying in Club Quarters Hotel in The Loop, but I'm comfortable using CTA to get about anywhere I want to go. If you can't join in until lunch time or after, we can make that work too. I'll have to head back to my hotel room by 4 p.m. to get ready for the opera. Y'all get this on your calendar, now!Chicago in September!2014-09-27 17:00:003

Bette Kauffman25,850Yes, Bette Kauffman is coming to Chicago! Opera Friday and Saturday evening, photowalk Saturday, home Sunday. Meet me at The Bean (Cloud Gate to the purists). If the weather cooperates, I plan to be out until about 4:30 p.m. If the weather is nasty (seems a real possibility this year), we'll head up to the conservatory and feast our lenses on orchids and such. Or go anywhere else protected from the elements y'all might suggest. I'm easy to please! Join me for all or part of the day. (Yes, that's @107400819855192601582 in the photo.)The Chicago-in-March photowalk is on!2014-03-08 17:00:007

Gailen Mapes84,567Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 22 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-22 12:36:07154000

Debashish Samaddar33,286Engager's Show & TellIf I sent you a notification, you are in this circle.This is a circle of people who have engaged with me in the past one month (last circle was released Jan 19).First of all, thanks for all the reshares, comments and plusses. I appreciate it all. I may not be able to respond to you individually but I am aware of it and appreciate it.As you have already seen all my posts, I will just highlight a few:A nightscape of downtown Phoenix with the light rail train whizzing by, caught on film:1.https://plus.google.com/104952228420449716209/posts/TwtPAGcPxxbPortrait of a friend:https://plus.google.com/104952228420449716209/posts/GCmoA7j5CMgPortrait of a landscape (hah!):https://plus.google.com/104952228420449716209/posts/JHzWKm4EjuTA medium format film camera I have started using.

There is no requirement to reshare, but resharing will probably help you get more followers and engagement. Plusses and reshares are always appreciated.There are more engagers but I had to choose a cut off point in order to keep it manageable. I have freed up space in the circle for new entrants. I choose from the top of my "relevant list" (as defined by Google+). To me you are all relevant! But for purposes of this circle, if you engage with me more, Google+ raises your score and it becomes easier for me to see you in the list.#circleshare #circle2015-02-18 14:31:1441115897186

Gailen Mapes75,719Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 26 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-27 11:25:53150111

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501848

Apple Blossom Orchid

Guess where I ended up this morning, +Tom Tran! And it was kinda by accident. I headed north on the Red Line planning to get off in the neighborhood y'all call the "Near North Side," but didn't have a map on me and didn't remember which stop to get off and overshot my mark.

Finally asked a guy on the train, who looked at me with great pity and suggested I get off at Fullerton and turn around. But I got down to the street and saw a sign about Lincoln Part apartments, or some such. Minutes later, I was on the #74 bus headed east. Got off at Webster and Lincoln and walked 3 blocks into the park across from the zoo.

Not much going on in the zoo today. Most of the animals indoors, which was odd since it was a good bit warmer today than the day in March 2012 when you and I were there. Not as many orchids in the conservatory either,... more »

These might take the prize for the tiniest wildflower ever! Thanks for sharing them with #wildflowerwednesday, +Bob Danley!

#wildflowerwednesday  - Spring Draba
An early, yet tiny wildflower, Draba verna, in bloom in our yard.

Natural History Notes: This plant is a member of the Mustard family. Some 100 species of Draba occur in the U.S. (Brandenburg 2010). This species is somewhat easy to identify. Note the dissected white flower petals and hairy leaves. Some experts feel this is an exotic weed, others feel this plant is circumboreal in distribution (Lesica 2012). One thing everyone can agree on, it is small in size. Note the pine needle in the photo for comparison. ___These might take the prize for the tiniest wildflower ever! Thanks for sharing them with #wildflowerwednesday, +Bob Danley!

Am I the only one who sees an exotic caterpillar here? Great shot by +Terrie Gray for #wildflowerwednesday ! Also hoping someone can ID this, as it is new to me.

Some call them weeds, but I love these miniature beauties!

Drink in this awesome color, shared with #wildflowerwednesday by +Diana Boyd, a devoted plant nerd who will travel a "fer piece" to get a shot like this! Love it.

This is Trillium errectum, a little beauty that I traveled to southern Kentucky to see a couple of Aprils ago. I found them on the top of Black Mountain, which is Kentucky's highest mountaintop.

So glad +Eric Hunt had his phone with him on his noon walk to share Arkansas' spring bluets with #wildflowerwednesday!

The Queen's Infrastructure

Have you ever gotten down and looked up at the underside of Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota)? You should. This gals got some support from below!

I'm really digging for #wildflowerwednesday these days. The weather is lovely here now and I'm sure blooms are breakin' out all over, but, of course, it also coincides with teacher's crazy time. Haven't been out with my camera except in rainy San Antonio last weekend on church business.

So this is from along Highway 82 in Arkansas on my way to the Arkansas Native Plant Society meeting last October, to which I was graciously invited by +Eric Hunt and where I had an absolute blast.

True confession: This beauty was growing right along the roadside, just a couple of feet off the roadway. I've never gotten down on cleaner earth to get a photo in my life!

More #KisatchieSplendor to remind you that tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday . Some of us are into spring. My own backyard is white with Spring Beauty, but, alas, no time to go out there and get a shot today. Must head back to school for my evening class.

For #wildflowewednesday tomorrow, please share your photos of wildflowers in their natural habitat and tag me, +Bette Kauffman, as well as #wildflowerwednesday . And tell the story! I love the stories of where and how you got the shot or what you know about the plant.

This little beauty is very common in Louisiana. I love how you will find different color flowers on a single plant, ranging from deep pink-purple to pale yellow. I have not figured out if these colors reflect change over time, or if the plant just blooms in different colors. In any case, they are delightful... more »

Apple Blossom Orchid

Guess where I ended up this morning, +Tom Tran! And it was kinda by accident. I headed north on the Red Line planning to get off in the neighborhood y'all call the "Near North Side," but didn't have a map on me and didn't remember which stop to get off and overshot my mark.

Finally asked a guy on the train, who looked at me with great pity and suggested I get off at Fullerton and turn around. But I got down to the street and saw a sign about Lincoln Part apartments, or some such. Minutes later, I was on the #74 bus headed east. Got off at Webster and Lincoln and walked 3 blocks into the park across from the zoo.

Not much going on in the zoo today. Most of the animals indoors, which was odd since it was a good bit warmer today than the day in March 2012 when you and I were there. Not as many orchids in the conservatory either,... more »

Dos Estrellas

So... a few weeks ago, Out of Chicago published a list of "interesting buildings to photograph" in The Loop. This afternoon in less than an hour I got thrown out of two of them. I briefly considered spending the afternoon finding out how many of them I could get thrown out of..., but decided instead to spend a lovely afternoon outside.

Who wants to identify this one?

I have seen butterflies hold their wings like this. Thanks for explaining it, +Silvia ZK, and for sharing this lovely shot with #wildflowerwednesday .

                        Fiery Skipper on Spanish Needles
                        Hylephila phyleus & Bidens pilosa

While I was focusing on the butterfly on my right side, I had no idea, when and from where the second appeared on my picture. I guess, it wanted to be on the picture as well. I don't mind. :))

The Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus) is a butterfly of the family Hesperiidae and are approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. The males are orange or yellow with black spots while the females are dark brown with orange or yellow spots. The caterpillars are greenish pink with a black head. The caterpillars are often considered pests and can feed on bermudagrass, creeping bentgrass, and St. Augustine grass.

Fiery skippers, along with all other species of skippers and skipperlings, can hold their wings in "triangle" shape. The forewings are held upright, and the hindwings are folded flat. This position is thought to better absorb the sun's rays.

The fiery Skipper lives in Northern America. Wikipedia

One of many Ranunculus that brighten spring in the Bitterroot Valley, a place +Bob Danley has made me seriously want to visit! Thanks for sharing with #wildflowerwednesday .

#wildflowerwednesday  - Sagebrush Buttercup
Ranunculus glaberrimus blooming right now in forest areas receiving good sun.
Curated by +Bette Kauffman 

Natural History Notes: 65 native species (Brandenburg 2010) of Ranunculus nation wide. This particular species is the first wildflower to bloom in the Bitterroot Valley come early spring. Early season forms are usually not very tall, ~2 inches or so. Waxy yellow flower petals turn white with age (Schiemann 2005). ___One of many Ranunculus that brighten spring in the Bitterroot Valley, a place +Bob Danley has made me seriously want to visit!

Many thanks to +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber for making good on his promise to share male Jojoba with #wildflowerwednesday. A very interesting plant all around!

Male Jojoba
Simmondsia chinensis

Last week I promised +Bette Kauffman a shot of some blossoms of the male Jojoba plant for #wildflowerwednesday  this week, so here it is.

As far as I know, no commercial products are derived from the male plant.

Photographed at Joshua Tree National Park, not in a Jojoba plantation, so this specimen really is a wildflower.___Many thanks to +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber for making good on his promise to share male Jojoba with #wildflowerwednesday. A very interesting plant all around!

St. Andrew's Cross (Ascyrum hypericoides)

I think the common name should be "Propeller Plant"! A bush of these looks like a head-full of cornrows and bows! But enough silliness. Tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday!

Every time I think I don't have any more wildflower shots I haven't processed and shared, I start through the archive and sure enough, there's a gem hidden there! Or at least a passable shot. I might have thought this was too soft focus on earlier reviews of this shoot, but... maybe necessity is the mother of innovation. In any case, I've decided it's a pleasant-enough experiment in soft focus!

So share your shots of wildflowers in their natural habitat tonight or tomorrow, and I'll have my fun with them tomorrow evening--a bit late, in fact, as I have early even duties. Don't forget to tag #wildflowerwednesday and... more »

Don't forget to tag #wildflowerwednesday and me, +Bette Kauffman, your over-extended curator who nontheless enjoys doing this.

Oh, yes, must mention this was a hot day in August 2014 in the once--cleared but now thick with waist-high vegetation path under and around huge power grid stanchions that sweep past Grambling, La.

And those of you who have fresh blooms to shoot, please refrain from gloating. Normally, I in Louisiana would be among you. Not this year!___

Snow Shelf

I can't tell you how rare this is! It was a lovely day in Louisiana. Got into the high 50s for the first time in a long time. Treated myself to an afternoon at #BlackBayou National Wildlife Refuge--and found patches of snow and ice in shady spots! Our last precip was last Wednesday, for crying out loud! Please don't be cross at me, all you Canucks and Chi-towners. This really is unprecedented for Louisiana!

For #shroomshotsaturday +ShroomshotSaturday, curated by +Patti Colston, +Michael Albrecht, +Sabeena LoBello & +Anders Stedtlund. And for #snowysaturday +#SnowySaturday, curated by +John Fujimagari.

I know, this hardly counts as snow. But snow is relative, right?! BTW, these 'shrooms were big, thick oyster-cracker like.

Testing for Moisture

When grain gets to the elevator, the trucks pull onto a gigantic scale, the driver (or an elevator worker) gets on top of the load and pulls a core sample--in this case of soybeans. The load is weighed and moisture content measured and recorded. Moisture matters in the management of grain to prevent spoilage, excessive drying costs, shrinkage and more.

Who can resist? The #wildflowerwednesday Gold Star goes to +Diana Boyd for this stunning image of a most wonderful wildflower. Perfect focus and DOF; wonderful color. What a gem!

This rare little Orchids name is Hexalectris spicata. I found it in bloom at a woodland edge in Adams County, Ohio in June. The flowers are about the size of my thumb and the stem is translucent.

#wildflowerwednesday appreciates the blossoms of native woody plants in their natural habitat as well. This lovely contribution is by +Victoria Powell. Thanks!

~Oregon Wild Plum~
Native to the west coast of the Western United States in California and western and southern Oregon. It grows in forests, most often at low elevation near the coast, but it is also in the Sierra Nevada and Cascades. The fruit is a small, plum-like drupe, and may be red or yellow; they mature in late summer. The plums are small and tart but edible.

Although not a wildflower, it is still a wild native plant. What do you think +Bette Kauffman ?___ #wildflowerwednesday appreciates the blossoms of native woody plants in their natural habitat as well. This lovely contribution is by +Victoria Powell. Thanks!

Would you not wear this woolly green goodness to keep you head warm if only it were big enough? I would! Thanks to +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber for this great contribution to #wildflowerwednesday .

Female Jojoba
Simmondsia chinensis

+George Sealy announced yesterday that the #mojave  has started to bloom, so my contribution to #wildflowerwednesday  (curated by +Bette Kauffman) this week is a shot I took during my one visit there a few years ago.

Yes, this is the plant from which they make Jojoba oil for shampoos, skin conditioners, etc. etc.

The Mojave is magical this time of year.  If you've never been, you owe it to yourself.  Bring your macro lens(es)!___Would you not wear this woolly green goodness to keep you head warm if only it were big enough?

+Bob Danley always has the best info! I did not know about ants spreading violet seeds. Good reason to have ants around! Thanks for sharing with #wildflowerwednesday .

#wildflowerwednesday  - Marsh Violet
Viola palustris growing in moist soil substrate. 
Curated by +Bette Kauffman 

Natural History Notes: One of 13 species of violet growing in Montana; there are 68 native species found in the US. Recognized by the flower shape and heart-shaped leaves. Seeds of many species are attractive to ants which disperse them (Lesica 2012).___+Bob Danley always has the best info! I did not know about ants spreading violet seeds.
