Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Canon 50mm 1.8 II lens, ISO 100, f/3.5, 1/160 sec.
   I came home the other night and on my walk from the driveway to the front door I happened to take a look at my wife's flower garden between the sidewalk and the porch.  My brother Jim says he used to have these purple flowers at his house and they are called flox (correct me if I am wrong Jimbo).  These flox are a bushy type of flower that grow and bloom as a huge group. 
  Melissa, my wife, has 3 or 4 of these flower groupings in a few spots in the yard and they are very densely populated.  You could imagine my surprise when I noticed this single dandelion poking up and standing tall against the purple flox. What a beautiful contrast it provided. It was like nature was giving me a freebie. "Here's your picture, Jerry, just point and shoot". How could I resist?


  1. This is WONDERFUL! I love the contrast of the solitary dandelion in this mix of purple beauty! Awesome work here Jerry!!

  2. Love it. The title perfectly complements the image.

  3. Perfect use of color my friend. Very well done.
