The February “best of” collection of cellphone photos (why? see the January post)
An averaged exposure of 8 or 10 single frames, just to see how averaging reduces noise (result: yes, works quite well).
Hummingbird Nest with Egg, Rancho Bernardo, California. February 2016.
Blades of Grass and Morning Dew, Lake Hodges, Rancho Bernardo, California. February 2016.
The Bougainvillea in front of our house exploded with flowers – but the pink leaves aren’t actually the flowers, they’re called bracts (a modified leaf). The actual flowers are the tiny white specks. Rancho Bernardo, California. February 2016.
Spring in the chaparral! Black Mountain Open Space Park, San Diego, California, February 2016.
Homemade chocolate pudding. February 2016.
Heirloom tomatoes always look a little bit like they decided to grow larger than they initially intended. February 2016.
The evergreen (or rather, drought-deciduous) Live Oaks put on a colorful display in spring, with yellow catkins (on the male plant) and pink fresh leaves (still missing the green epidermis). Rancho Bernardo, California, February 2016.
