An attractive weed growing in the flower garden. In some ways, I fail at decorative gardening, as I tend to avoid uprooting interesting-looking weeds, and let them develop to see how they turn out. On the other paw, stuff like this is often more visually striking than what I actually planted, so...
A young Chipmunk, almost certainly one of the family that was raised under the concrete stairs, sits quietly as I sneak up on her. She's well aware that I'm there, but I think she hopes that I haven't seen her. That probably seems plausible from her perspective, as I'm fiddling with the camera and not really even looking directly at her. ("What's he doing? Is he eating that thing?") I got within about two and a half feet before she bolted.
Late afternoon, and a spider builds her web in the garden. I like how the sun shines through her legs, a warm amber and brown like tortoiseshell.
Now she finishes, and waits, hoping that she'll catch something tonight.
