There are many things in nature that have recognizable scents. Here are some of the more recent photos I’ve taken where I immediately recall the scent, aroma, or smell as soon as I look at the photo. The first photo is of a young coot bird in a rather swampy pond at the Oak Glen Preserve.
Here’s another set of photos where I immediately recall the smell. Of course, if you don’t pay attention to the stinky pink birds, then you will start to notice what all the fuss and commotion is about. Either way, it’s not something I’ll forget.
Other times, nature photos remind me of more pleasant scents, such as these next two, where rain, salty ocean, and sandy beach aromas mix.
I can’t bring up scents and nature without sharing flower photos. If I had the time, I’d post a flower every day! These next three flowers are my favorite-smelling flowers in my gardens. I can recall their scents just looking at the photos.
