In the 'Dog Days of Summer", humidity levels are above normal in my part of the world. In early morning I walk my dog through the woods around my house and for several days I noticed some pretty little flowers (weeds) that might offer a photo opportunity. By the time I finish walking the dog, I have usually forgotten all the different things I might want to photograph for sharing here and on Facebook.
A few mornings back, I did remember to pull out a camera to photograph the little weed in the woods, but when I turned on the camera, I discovered that the lens had fogged over as it was still cold from being in the air conditioned house at 73ºF. No matter, I shot the frame anyway.
I thought about throwing the photo away as I do most of my shots, but I kinda liked the ethereal look of the little flower...almost a glow. I wonder how many thousands of tiny, tiny water droplets must have been on the lens! As most of you know, I wonder about a great number of things!

It is great effect Larry,the background is so much so out of focus that it has eched out the tiny weed as a beautiful flower !!!!!!

Thank you Peter. I wonder where those colors originated. This area was very shaded as it is throughout the day with little rays of sunshine sometimes penetrating through the woods.

Thank you Soumen. My f/stop was set to '2', so the depth of field was pretty shallow.

Delightful little flower and a lovely effect.
Larry, you mention your dog - for the first time, I think! Now you've got me curious to see a picture of him or her.

Thank you Sylvia. My dog...it's one I rescued about 1½ years ago. It's brindle colored, stripped like a Tiger (sort of). I believe the breed to be Catahoula, the State dog of Louisiana. Sometimes referred to as a Leopard Dog. It has very high energy levels and would not be still long enough to be photographed.

Very kind of you to take in a homeless dog, Larry. Perhaps you can get a shot when he/she is asleep!
