With that variety in mind I am making my first post for the meme Today's Flowers. I have not really paid a whole lot of attention to flowers and other plant life while I have been out exploring nature. Perhaps participating in this meme will help me to look at flowers differently and have a greater appreciation for them just as I do now with the sky and places of my world. Unfortunately flowers are not the easiest things to photograph in Minnesota during the winter time but I noticed while going through my pics that many shots have flowers in them. Plus there are places that I can go that have flowers inside that I can photograph.

Today's Flowers: Water Lily
If you have been reading Ecobirder with any regularity you might have noticed that I have been trying out a lot of memes lately. I am doing this for several reasons. First of all memes help to give a blog some more exposure to people who may not know about it. Typically Ecobirder gets between 100 to 150 unique visitors per day. I am pretty happy with that, considering I have only been at it for about one and a half years and I really did not know anything about blogging when I started. But that leaves a lot of people out there who may not even know about my little blog. Memes help people find the blog and hopefully they decide that they like it and come back regularly. Memes also help provide some structure and variety. When I began blogging I would have never thought to take pictures of water or the sky but because of the memes I have explored some new ground which has expended my horizons and hopefully made the blog better.
