Down and Dirty

I had read on a few blogs about the Picture This photo contest over at Gardening Gone Wild but had never thought to enter it until now. The theme for August’s Picture This Photo Contest is “Down on Your Knees” - a picture taken at knee level or lower. I LOVE those pictures! And I had the perfect subject out in the garden. So here is my first entry to Picture This:

Wendy, thanks. It was a tricky shot as it was an upshot of a mushroom so the screen was against the ground and I had to rely on the reflection of the lens to fix the composition and the sun was shining overhead, so I was glad to see that it turned out so well.

Raji, hey, thanks for stopping by! I love mushrooms and this was a beautiful one on top, so I wanted to see what it looked like underneath

Sweet Bay, thanks. I loved this theme.

Very cool!! If I'd done that I think I would have had a head full of fleas, ticks, and ants, LOL!

Thanks for the ID on my mushroom. I was thinking it was amanita but didn't realize there yellow amanitas out there.

Sylvana, I think you were down a lot lower than your knees. That's a VERY remarkable photo. I've been looking for other Wisconsin bloggers. Glad to have found you.

Donna, On Wisconsin!
You know, I thought at the very least I would get a shout-out for the absolute lowest picture (I had to dig a hole to get that shot!). Nothing. But that's OK because I really like this picture and the picture that I thought would win did. It was an absolutely magical shot of a girl spinning around with a cattail. I LOVED IT!
