    Headed out yesterday after work to the Rice Creek Regional Trail. Took the M240 and shot the 21mm Super-Elmarit. Marumi Polarizing CPL on some:

    Lovely tranquil set! Love the boys fishing and the dog of course. I didn't know those white things were called Moon Flowers either!

    Thanks! Hmmm. I'll see if a google gives me the real name for the flowers. I just called the shot that as a mash-up of the moon and flowers. "Moon Flowers" would be a great name for them, however.

    OK, Brides Wreath Spirea is the likely co-subject. Flower formations match. While some pics show leaves having a smooth shiny character, others show veined with serrated edges as here.

    One more, the far bridge take from the near bridge as seen in the boys fishing shot:
