Franklin is southwest of Milwaukee.
I am so lucky to live next to a wetland preservation area. With the changes of the seasons, and year to year changes, the wetlands are a joy to photograph with a macro lens. There are so many small, wondrous details.
On a beautiful sunny day with so many flowers blooming, the bees are very busy around here. You can get quite close to get your shot. The "cup plant" flower is abundant in the wetlands area by my home and truly epitomize summer. The plant looks like a small-flowered version of a sunflower.
