Straight Out Of The Camera Sunday


It is Straight Out of the Camera Sunday again, a meme of Murrieta 365.  There are two rules:  1) photo must be taken by you and 2) no tweaking.


This sunflower bloomed on the wrong side of the fence:  a few hours after taking the photo, it was gone.  I noticed a couple of deer 20 or 30 feet from the fence as I walked out to the garden.  A snack, maybe? Next year, sunflowers will be planted a foot or two away from the fence.  lol  If you look close, you'll see a bumblebee hard at work and some kind of yucky bug near the center.

Until next time, God bless.

That is a beautiful sunflower, great shots of it and the bumble bee. The little beetle isn't yucky, he's cute.
