Macro Monday

I thought this would be a good day for a macro  so I’m calling this Macro Monday!  There are some beautiful wild flowers in Rocky Mountain National Park.  The one that really caught my eye were these bell-shaped flowers with really brilliant violet and pink colors! I’ve come to find out they are called “forget-me-nots” or also known as “lungwort,” “bluebells,” “languid-ladies,”  or “lanceleaf chiming bells.” The latin name for these perennials is Mertensia lanceolata and they are native to the Central Rocky Mountain Region in the USA (CO, MT, ND, NE, NM, SD, UT, WY) and CAN (AB, MB, SK).  There is your horticulture lesson for today!

Capture Notes:

Hopefully these pretty forget-me-nots  will start your week off on a bright note!
If you didn’t see my iPhone pictures for the week, but sure to head over to my Facebook page and see the Smartphone Saturday.  I’ve started to use  Nik Software’s Snapseed to edit take and edit photos on my iPhone and iPad. It’s a great app for editing photos on the fly on your iOS device.  I’ve used it a client sites to give them quick on the spot preview and I’m able to email them photos that they can share via social media or via email with their friends, family, co-workers while I work on the final product.  It’s a must have app for taking pictures on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch! Click on the iTunes link below to get Snapseed. Have a great Monday and a great week!
