This time of year in northern Ohio is so nice. The days are warm, the nights are starting to become cool and clear and Fall is definitely on its way. There's usually something good to say about every month of the year around here but we are coming into some of the most pleasant weeks of the entire calendar year and I'm really looking forward to it. And there are so many things to photograph - late blooming flowers and plants, early changing leaf colors, bright sun and blue skies, etc.
So, in this photo rich environment it's easier to find something interesting to shoot. In this case it's a simple weed that has gone to seed back-lit by the rising sun. The hard part was getting this guy to stand still in the gentle breeze.
