Straight Out of the Camera Sunday


It's Straight Out of the Camera Sunday time.  There are two rules:  1) photo must be taken by you, and 2) no tweaking (cropping allowed). 


Our weather seems to think it is Spring since we got 6 plus inches of rain in September. The flowers caught my eye as I pulled up to a stop sign along my regular route from my house to the highway.  I've never seen this wildflower before and did not notice the spider web until I focused in with the camera.  


Aren't these delicate and a delightful splash of color?


These too were below the pink flowers.


But to prove that we are entering Fall, these leaves were just a few inches to the side of the pink flowers.  :D  We here in Central Texas are not known for our beautiful "Fall" colors.

Until next time, God bless.

The first shot with the cobweb is my favorite. Seems the flowers get confused when we have a lot of rain.

I had a double take on that last picture, since it almost looked like snow behind the red leaves. But I'm sure it was my imagination. Great shots!

Lovely flowers, and I love how fall leaves can almost be flowers themselves.

It is wonderful to see some last minute splashes of colour out there.

those flowers were worth photographing. So pretty. I like the way they bloom in what seems to be a harsh surrounding.

Thanks for visiting my entry, but, sorry, no ducks taking off, it is geeze. :)

Wonderful! We do have some fall colors appearing up here in WI but the flowers still seem confused too because I keep seeing blooms. :)

I think pink and yellow are great colors to have around in the fall. It's been like that here too I am seeing lots of flowers and the leaves are just now beginning to show some color.
