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 Kauffman25,793Yes, 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).

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 Mapes72,137Hand 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-26 11:38:46148212

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

I'm not sure why anyone in the Deep South needs a Christmas Tree. I say, just go for a walk along the bayou and see the cypress trees in their winter glory. Of course these leaves will drop before long.

Come on in, the ice is fine!

So... I grew up doing this on ponds and lakes in southeast Iowa. Will never forget how proudly I wore my first and only pair of white shoe skates--not clip-ons, but real shoe skates! And wearing them I skated like an Olympic medalist... in my mind!

Anyway, folks, now you can do it in the heart of Chicago!

Here's a little botany lesson for y'all from +Eric Hunt and #wildflowerwednesday . I just did a quick Google search, and it appears the purple-flowered shrub we have here in Louisiana is probably related!

Witchhazels in Arkansas

We have both species of Hamamelis in Arkansas. The reddish flowered one is Hamamelis vernalis and the pale yellow one is Hamamelis virginiana.

Typically H. virginiana blooms in fall or winter followed about 4-6 weeks later by H. vernalis in winter or early spring.

My hike along the Ouachita National Trail in Perry County in early November 2012 found both species blooming together. I suspect the brutally hot and dry summer of 2012 and then a fairly rainy September and October confused the blooming time of H. vernalis.

Photographed near the Nancy Mountain Shelter on the Ouachita National Trail in the Ouachita National Forest, Perry County, Arkansas

Look at the wonderful detail in this beauty shared with #wildflowerwed by +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber.

Mariposa Lily
Genus Calochortus, species unknown

For #wildflowerwednesday  curated by +Bette Kauffman 

Depending on which source you consult, there are some forty to seventy species in the Calochortus genus that are all called Mariposa Lilies.  They are native to western North America, growing both in the mountains and the grasslands.  They come in a variety of different colors, petal shapes and hairiness.

This one, which I never managed to key out, was growing in the High Plains between the Rockies and the Hogback* in northern Colorado (see geotag for specifics).  This particular species seems to thrive from here all the way up to Rocky Mountain National Park, which is a bit unusual.

If you happen to know which species it is, please post a comment.

* A distinctive geological feature that runs all the way through Colorado immediately east of the Rocky Mountains.  It is a remnant of the uplift that formed the Rockies' eastern face.___Look at the wonderful detail in this beauty shared with #wildflowerwed by +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber.

One of Many (Symphyotrichum lateriflorus)

Asters, that is! I was pleased that my friend the botanist was able to identify this one because we have many and I can't tell them apart.

And tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday ! Although I shot this lovely little aster in early November, I am running low on recent wildflower shots. Will have to dip more deeply into the archives soon! But, hey, that's ok. So I hope you'll share your wildflowers in their natural habitat tomorrow. Please share only your own work, please tell the story of the shot, and don't forget to tag #wildflowerwednesday and me, +Bette Kauffman.

I found several of these asters in full bloom in early November in a field biology lab that belongs to my university's biology department and has maintained trails but is otherwise in its natural state. It is a lovely area of mixed terrain,... more »

I found several of these asters in full bloom in early November in a field biology lab that belongs to my university's biology department and has maintained trails but is otherwise in its natural state. It is a lovely area of mixed terrain, ranging from bluffs overlooking the Ouachita River to a low areas on the river bank and around a cattail pond. It has a correspondingly diverse plant life. Interestingly, I found one of these blooming asters in the low area and several on top of the bluff overlooking the river. But that's aster; at least ours here in the south grow just about everywhere!

BTW, next Wednesday is Christmas Eve and your curator is taking the day off from curating.___

My contribution to November's #12rulesproject FOREGROUND by +Levi Moore.  I went looking for a scene in which the background complemented the featured foreground. This is what I found.

Louisiana is seeking to restore the spectacular Longleaf Pine (Pinus palustris), the dominant native tree that once covered millions of acres in the south. Because of its high quality wood, it was decimated by over-harvesting, especially for ship building. In it's place, the fast-growing but lower quality Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda) was planted.

Today, Longleaf sapplings like the two below are being protected and encouraged to grow throughout the Kisatchie National Forest in west central Louisiana. And that's Loblolly in the background, also beautiful, but.... the Longleaf are special!

And 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.___One week from today, y'all!

Natural History Notes: This is one cool looking display of flowers. Plant is not that robust, about 14 inches tall. It is easy to walk by! Once discovered the flower colors and shape are beautiful. Seven species in Montana all in the Saxifrage family. First described by Charles Vancouver Piper, American botanist and agriculturalist. He compiled the first authoritative guides to flora in the

Love, love this color of milkweed, shared with #wildflowerwednesday b6 +Diana Boyd.

This is Asclepias purpurea, Purple Milkweed, a native to the eastern US.
I found this beauty while hiking at Chaparrel Prairie State Nature Preserve in Adams County, Ohio.
The color is much brighter than the Common Milkweed and they bloom a bit earlier also.

Green Milkweed (Asclepias viridiflora)

#wildflowerwednesday is back! And so happy to be. Yes, I know, a lot of you are without fresh wildflowers in your life right now, so spend a little time wandering through your archives. Surprise! Look what you overlooked!

Like me. This green milkweed shot is from a short but fantastic wander through Nature Conservancy land in Central Louisiana that is not open to the public. A handful of us got special permission to go in for a couple of hours, and it was fantastic. That was back in May of this year, and I'm still finding cool things in my take of a couple hundred shots.

So... I, your curator +Bette Kauffman, will be here tomorrow looking for your #wildflowerwednesday contributions. Be sure to share only your own photos of wildflowers in their natural habitat, and please share the story of the shot.

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.___Can it be? Just two weeks away....!

Lemon BeeBalm (Mondarda citriodora)

Dear #wildflowerwednesday friends, fans and contributors: Your curator is more than overwhelmed. I don't believe I ever got to commenting on your wonderful contributions last week, and this week I am in alligators up to my eyeballs. Well, maybe not alligators, but exams and grading for sure--kind of the same thing. We're in the middle of finals week here. So with regret and my apology, I must announce that #wildflowerwednesday will remain shuttered and silent this week. I do look forward to an energized return the following week! In the meantime, enjoy this Lemon Beebalm--a truly amazing plant. Later, alligator. +Bette Kauffman

Punkster II

So... I threw out the #fourveggiecolorchallenge over a week ago, but never posted my own fourth offering. The early part of this week got totally hijacked by work. But that's the beauty of the #fourveggiechallenge s: No rule that you must post subsequent days!

BTW, +Heiko Mahr & +Jürgen Hurst have been making fantastic posts to this challenge, so be sure to check out their streams.

Also for #colorsonfriday +ColorsOnFriday, curated by +Britta Rogge & +Karsten Meyer. And for #close2home +Close2Home, curated by +David Pond, +Pia Raben, +Shaun Stewart, +José Juan Escudero & +Howard Weitzel.
