The Natural Side of Disc Golf

A disc communes with cacti.

Because I’m a photographer, disc golf is more than just a sport to me.

Beautiful purple flowers make their presence known.

Although I love documenting my younger son playing, I’m thankful there usually are distractions that make me glad I’m using my Nikon 105mm macro lens.

I don’t want to know what these cicadas were doing before exiting their shells.

When the guys played at the Roy G. Guerrero disc golf course recently in Austin, the 105 got a workout shooting drives and putts as well as plenty of nature. The course features lots of trees, a bunch of exoskeletons hanging off leaves, and a few wildflowers.

Several butterflies try to blend in with a tree.

We saw lots of non-colorful butterflies.

I see you!

Most were on the trees.

While some rested on the ground trying not to get hit by flying discs.

Among those few wildflowers were beautiful thistles. This one attracted a green bee (I had never seen one before).

Skippers also liked the purple hues.

Skippers and thistles go together.

I came away from the course with an appreciation for all it had to offer . . . in terms of disc golf and nature!
