Summer Hummers of Last Summer                        by:  brendasue

Hi Everyone.  Come in and cool off for a minute and see these Hot Photos for Today!
And welcome to my mini Nature Class with Photography Tips and Ideas.  Greatest World Class Ever-No Teacher, No Tests, No Rules, No Grades, No Dress Code. Strictly Come as you are and stay if you want to or click off.

I hope to encourage you to get a camera and start taking photos of your world. If you you begin to learn just a little bit about the living things on the Earth, you will want to learn More. So, what did you do for your Earth Today? Sit on it? Start to think about doing something for the good of the Earth. We do have to live here, there are no other options!

We will have a brief photostudy today on Hot Flowers in the Summer Gardens of Texas:  Zinnias.  Enjoy!

Let The Class Begin!

Zinnia Flower Garden                                 by:  brendasue

These Zinnias were planted from seed last spring. For flowers that love the Hot Texas Heat In August, The Zinnia has to be at the top of the short list.

Colorful Flowers          by:  brendasue

As you can see, these flowers are standing up in 100 degree heat (and I'm not!)

*Photography Tip:  Plan your photoshoots very carefully if you have this type of heat. It is not good for you or the digital cameras for long exposure to this temperature. Protect the cameras and freeze some bottles of water in advance for you.

Hot Colors!     by:  brendasue

Zinnias are known from Southwest America to South America.  Originally from Mexico.

You can find more information about these great cut flowers from the link below:

Here is a link to find out more about these little green grasshoppers:

They are very interesting little guys. Some people do eat grasshoppers as they are high in protein.
