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 17:30:005

Bette Kauffman25,573Yes, 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 +Tom Tran in the photo.)The Chicago-in-March photowalk is on!2014-03-08 17:00:005

Gailen Mapes67,125Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  I-K - 26 of 30Note: 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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-26 12:56:2314211410

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223

Monochrome World6,526January 2014 Contributors Circle What an amazing month. The quality of the work shared has been exceptional, at least in my view. You do quality photography and it shows. In terms of contribution numbers it was humongous, and in terms of contributors, we beat all records. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Re-share this circle if you can. It helps YOU and the theme to grow.Please remember to include in your posts, both the page and tag: +Monochrome World  #monochromeworld  This makes it easier to find your post. Also, all those included in this circle added the theme page to their circles. If you don't do that, I can't add you to the Contributors Circle.Note:1- please share your images posted to Public. If you post to communities, only community members can comment.2- So, my recommendation is this: post to Public first, then re-port to your favorite community.3- And, if you post to Extended Circles, your reach is limited and it makes difficult to re-share. So, it's been a rule for a long time: Extended Circles only-posts are not re-shared.Hope this helps clarify some issues. Thank you for your patience, and if I missed you in this circle, please let me know so I can pay more attention to your posts.Curator: +andi rivarola  #circleshare   #sharingcircles  +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +Valued Circle Shares 2014-02-04 03:06:3237613276159

Stuart Dyckhoff25,367January EngagersEveryone in this circle has directly engaged with at least one of my posts this past month. This share is my way of saying thank you again for having done so.The only way to get in my monthly engagers circle is to comment on at least one of my posts. A +1 won't do it and it doesn't matter whether I follow you back or not because for at least that month I will follow you if you comment. If you aren't normally in my circles then it's up to you to show me why you ought to remain. That could be by even more regular interaction with me or by sharing your own stuff that makes me want to engage back.Irrespective I do truly appreciate each and every comment folks make as it's this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here. Thank you, Diolch, Grazi.2014-01-31 06:53:00811517

Gailen Mapes58,711Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 26 of 30Note: 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.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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-01-26 11:33:0714210310

ID?

I have struck out on identifying this damselfly. I assume it is a female laying eggs. I saw a male Rambur's Forktail in this vicinity, but in spite of the green eyes and back, this does not look like any photos of Rambur's females I can find online. +Jim Miller, what do you say? The location is a drainage ditch on the edge of a crop-dusting airfield in Morehouse Parish, La.

Rambur's Forktail (Ischnura ramburii)

At one of my fave odonata sites, a small crop dusting airfield bordered by a drainage ditch in the middle of farmland. I could not get close this day and so I really had to crop and enlarge, but it is still reasonably sharp.

Love you, son!

Okay, so +Mandy Sloan is responsible for this one with her touching photo of her two adorable girls. Yes, #weareparents and I moved this  boy-man three and a half hours from home last weekend into an apartment of his own. His company sent him there. He's all grown up but still a boy in my heart and I miss him so. And this is just one example of his goofy sweetness.

Here's a new one to me, and those spent flower heads look a lot like the mace the president of the faculty senate carries at every commencement at my university! Great photo and story for #wildflowerwednesday by +Bob Danley!

#wildflowerwednesday  - Curlycup Gumweed
Likely Grindelia squarrosa (hybridizes here) growing about 200 yards from our house, down a steep slope that has remnant native vegetation. Original intention was to photograph butterflies coming to flowering Rubber Rabbitbrush (Ericameria nauseosa) (does the name paint a mental picture for you?).  Yes, there was excellent butterfly action (http://goo.gl/3rOQIW), but several tall yellow-flowered plants caught my eye. On closer examination noticed the sticky looking, mace-like spent flower heads. Touched, sure enough sticky and smelly spearmint-like :-)
Moral of the story :-) " Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally " (David Frost).

Everyone needs a little red in their life! Here's some gorgeous red by +Eric Hunt for #wildflowerwednesday .

Lobelia cardinalis

Common name: Red Cardinal Flower

Typically found along the edges of small creeks and streams. Prefers wet conditions.

Species from southeastern Canada south through the eastern and southwestern United States, then into Mexico, Central America, and northern Colombia

This past weekend was the first cool weather in about 6 weeks. I took the chance to visit Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area in the Ozarks - about an hour north of Russellville in far northern Pope County.

The creek that flows over Kings Bluff was just a trickle and I really enjoyed walking up the hard stone creekbed enjoying the wildflowers. Lobelia cardinalis was just finishing up for the year and was looking nice.

Along the Kings Bluff Loop at Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area in the Ozark National Forest

Look at these luminous lovelies seemingly sprouting from a rock! Great contribution to #wildflowerwednesday by +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber.

Stonecrop
for #wildflowerwednesday  curated by +Bette Kauffman 

Here's one from ten years ago that I shot while on a hike up the McKenzie River.  It's a succulent; like cacti, it stores water when it's available and lives off of it when it's dry.  Which is what the swollen leaves are all about.

Taxonomic data in "Photo Details."  No geotag; this was shot on film.___Look at these luminous lovelies seemingly sprouting from a rock! Great contribution to #wildflowerwednesday by +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber.

Longflowered Beeblossom (Gaura longiflora)

First I must apologize to all #wildflowerwednesday followers and fans. Last week I was kind of missing in action. I moved my son to Baton Rouge Friday, which means most of the week was devoted to packing. I'm not sure I ever managed to respond to all of the submission. So sorry! Now I'm rattling around a very empty house, so... I'm doubly excited to look at your submissions tomorrow evening!

Once again, the rules are simple: wildflowers in their natural habitat, your own photos only, and I love to hear your stories about the plant and getting the shot. Mine is short this week. Went hiking with a friend a couple of weeks ago into the #KisatchieNationalForest, an incredible treasure I can access about an hour from home. Beeblossom flowers are tiny; this was shot with stacked extension tubes.

Wandering Glider (Pantala flavescens)

Every once in awhile, I get luck! These beauties almost never perch. Cathing them on the fly takes patience and persistence, at least for me. I got this one shot in focus from among many whilst standing at the drainage ditch at the intersection of soybean fields, no shade in sight, sweat running into my eyes and down my spine. I suppose that is why I am inordinately proud!

Cuttin' Beans

This might be my fave #LouisianaAgriculture image so far! Farmers always must worry about getting the crop in while conditions are right, but this fall has been a bigger challenge than some because we've had an uncommonly wet August.

I came upon this driving home from a meeting, and had only my iPhone with me. Got two usable shots, then they were done off-loading and called it a night. The farmer said I was welcome to come back with the good camera the following evening when he planned to pick until dark nearby but, alas, it was raining!

Tractor Tango 1

The tractor-combine turns one way and the "chase tractor" pulling the grain cart turns the opposite direction and as soon as both have made their turn, the chase tractor pulls up parallel to the combine and positions his grain cart under the auger. The two proceed down the field maintaining pace and distance from each other, the grain flowing from combine to cart. It saves a lot of time. And both travel in a perpetual cloud of dust!

Scaly Blazing Star (Liatris squarrosa)

Calling all #wildflowerwednesday fans! Tomorrow is the day to share your wildflowers in their natural habitat. Be sure to share only your own photos, and I love hearing the stories of how you got the shot, plus anything else you know about the plants. I'm a bit of a plant nerd that way!

I went back to the #KisatchieNationalForest Saturday to revisit the place I stopped for just a few minutes back in early August. I was astounded then and shared a photo of the magnificent Prairie Blazing Star (Liatris pycnostachya) that was everywhere. This trip, they were all spent blooms, but the Liatris squarrosa was still going strong. I took a friend and we hiked into the forest a ways, and came out with some cool butterfly shots, an amazing session with a praying mantis, some cool grasshopper encounters, and a nice variety of wildflowers.... more »

I'll be processing these photos for awhile.

BTW, I'm considering doing some sub-themes, perhaps using colors or genuses (like Liatris) or whatever. Thoughts on that?___

In the meantime, I could sure use a little help with this week. So I'm sharing one from Gary's profile page, with a nod to +Bill Zinck, whose photo it is, and to +Levi Moore for starting the silliness. Or magic, whichever it turns out to be! :D

So... +Bob Danley tricked me a bit with his Hawksbeard. I thought "dandelion," but I'm always excited to meet the new species he comes up with for #wildflowerwednesday !

#wildflowerwednesday  - Gray Hawksbeard
Crepis occidentalis in flower at sagebrush flat on the westslope of the Sapphire Mountains.

Natural History Notes: Flowers are dandelion-like, but spikier leaves are not. Hawksbeard species are tough to distinguish because of hybridization (Lesica 2012). This species is found in dry uplands flowering early summer. Exudes milky fluid when cut.

Update

After a 3-week pause to begin the fall semester, I designed a cover for the mock-up/proposal, uploaded it to Blurb, and immediately ordered two copies. I plan to send one each to LSU Press and University Press of Mississippi.

And... Taschen, the German publisher suggested by +Heiko Mahr, has declined the book, albeit with a kind assessment:

"Your book proposal definitely is interesting. The more we regret to inform you that we cannot insert the title into our editorial program. At present we have already planned our publications for the next few years and, unfortunately, we do not have any free capacities in our editorial department to look after new book projects."___Update

Common Whitetail, female (Plathemis lydia)

My first of the female of this species! Always fun to get a new one. Along with this shot, I got a load of chigger/red bug bights. Forgot to spray myself. It is late summer in Louisiana, nitwit. sigh

Dear #wildflowerwednesday contributors: I couldn't stay awake long enough last night to properly respond to all of the wonderful contributions and reshare them as I usually do! And here it is nearly midnight tonight, so I'm going to have to settle for sharing this beauty by +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber. Gorgeous shot, Ken! My semester has been hell on wheels so far. Hope it gets better.....

Another shot of Blue Camas (Camassia quamash), a very common spring wildflower in the Pacific Northwest, for #wildflowerwednesday  curated by +Bette Kauffman.

This was an important food staple to the native peoples (aka "Indians") of the Pacific Northwest.  Its starchy, bulbous root reportedly tastes like potato.

This was shot on film and isn't geotagged.  This specimen was in the Howard Buford Recreation Area (which is primarily a botanical nature preserve) near Eugene / Springfield, Oregon.___Dear #wildflowerwednesday contributors: I couldn't stay awake long enough last night to properly respond to all of the wonderful contributions and reshare them as I usually do!
