Of course I'm still twitching a bit because I can't chase around photographing birds. But honestly I think I needed the break. Don't get me wrong, as soon as I raise the money for my new lens I'll be off and running. But in the mean time I'm getting to stop and smell the roses, or in this case hydrangeas. After photographing the ones at Chanticleer last month I was sure I'd missed all the rest. But nope. They are just about to reach their peak. Swarthmore's Scott Arboretum has a fantastic collection. And they have such beautiful names: All Summer Beauty, Beni Gaku, Annabelle, Semmes Beauty, Snow Queen (an Oak Leaf Hydrangea, for some reason I love that name even more than "Snow Queen"), and Moonlight.
