f/2; 1/250/sec; ISO 250; exposure compensation -1/3; hand-held. I had left one small field unmowed, a ways down from my house. These thistle, along with several other wildflowers, have survived the 5 week drought, and then 11 inches of rain from Tropical Storm Lee last week. I shot this just a few hours ago. Afterward, in the gathering gloom, a skunk appeared. I snapped a couple shots of him, but they weren't focused too well...the light level probably -1 billion EV or so. We also have a black bear roaming around lately, but I have yet to snap one of him.
