May 6

Low-key day so I decided to photograph these wildflowers at the entrance to my subdivision. I've had my eye on them for just such a day. *Mom and Dad, you get to identify them for me again!* They grow right on the side of the road; they leaf out and send up flower shoots like dandelions. f/5.3 at 1/50, ISO100, 135mm.

*May 15th update on these flowers. I think they're called knapweed, which is a noxious weed and not wanted in the northwest. It sends out a poison from its roots and spreads. So I reported it to the county noxious weed control. Too bad, because they're really pretty!
