Colorful Summer “Weeds”

When searching for subjects to photograph in the summer months, the colorful wildflowers (weeds?!) in cultivated fields and edge habitats are rarely a priority. However, sometimes a scene materializes that simply cannot be ignored. These opportunities often arise when I’m en route, walking or driving to and from a favorite wetland.
