Volunteer Sunflower

I stopped by a local farm stand to buy some sweet corn. This row of sunflowers was growing between a harrowed field and the road. I spoke with Henry, the farmer, and he said that these were “volunteers” that had popped up on their own after he’d harrowed in the field this spring.

Jewel leaf drops

This photo really demonstrates a shallow depth of field with the focus being limited to a narrow band across the leaf and including the rain drop. And I didn’t even have the lens wide open!

Diamond Daisy Fleabane

The morning dew was heavy today, and this daisy fleabane blossom seems to have every millimeter of its surface covered with it—almost as if it had gotten the Fabergé treatment!

What’s the under the hat?
