Always such a cheerful sign of summer. These were at the Occidental Farmer's Market recently.

This little fellow hung around for so long, so undaunted by our presence, that I started to wonder about him. Finally, he (she?) did fly off. (You really do need to click on this one to enlarge it)

Queen Anne's Lace

All season long I'm shooting photos of this, one of our most ubiquitous wildflowers. I'm fascinated by all its phases, from a bud surrounded by a web of green tracery, to its pricky-soft nest of seeds. From above, from below, and especially catching the last rays of sunset. Hadn't even been sure it was officially Queen Anne's Lace, but I recent Google Search appears to confirm it.

Carrot family, they say.
