Coral honeysuckle bud

A great way to start the 2014 New Year is to share a beautiful honeysuckle bud photo by Steven Schwartzman of “Portraits of Wildflowers.” He lists some tips too on how to capture photos of nature. Check it out! Cathy Testa

Portraits of Wildflowers

On December 4, 2013, when I spent a damp and overcast hour or two at the Arbor Walk pond in north-central Austin, I was surprised to find coral honeysuckle, Lonicera sempervirens, budding and flowering on the same side of the pond where I’d found it before but on the opposite side of the year from its norm. Oh well, as botanists have been known to quip, wildflowers don’t read field guides. And as with almost every plant out there in nature, notice the faint spiderwebs on this honeysuckle.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that points 1, 2, 5 and 6 in About My Techniques are relevant to this photograph.
