A sow thistle bloom ready to go "poof". This macro shot was taken a day after the two previous images of the Sow thistle weed in my yard when it was in full bloom. Compare the bloom with this one gone to seed for a surprise. I really had fun trying for this shot handheld. Yes, I know I should be grabbing the tripod but then it is a challenge to see just how still I can hold. Setting the focus to manual on this Canon 60mm EF-S f/2.8 lens is how I do it.
