Chandler Day 293: Sea Oats

DSC05867It is amazing how diverse the flora and fauna truly is. All it takes is a closer look. Having worked in the Ecolab with a Restoration Ecologist for only a few weeks, it is amazing how much I am learning and seeing. There are so many plants, trees and insects that I would have never noticed if they hadn’t been pointed out. For example this little plant, which is called Northern Sea Oats. It is fairly small and easily overlooked, but it is so pretty. In the fall they are full of different colors from green, to yellow, to this maroon color. This world and the things that inhabit it are incredibly wonderful. So take a closer look next time you are out and about.

Chandler Day 288: Getting Paid to Shoot Pretty Little Flowers

DSC05860Today I got to shoot photos in the Ecolab for work. This is pretty cool, because it’s the first time I have gotten paid to walk around and take photos. I documented a lot of flowers and seed pods throughout the Ecolab and focused on some of the great fall colors that are starting to appear. And I got a few fun fun shots like this one that I thought were pretty.
