Cosmos Burst

The light levels were low at the Vegetable Garden most evenings when we were at Callaway Gardens.  Plus it was wintertime, and there weren’t many birds around.  I photographed a few Yellow-Rumped Warblers and a Junco, which is really common but not in Florida, and then my attention turned to other photogenic subjects.  This clump of cosmos was about the only colorful thing in the garden.  I decided to take advantage of the low light and try to make some pleasing blurs.  This was my favorite.
