Lunchtime Photo

Here in Southern California the wildflowers are starting to bloom, and with all the rain we’ve had this year it ought to be a great season later this month and next. This is a lovely yellow wildflower in front of Morris Reservoir in the Angeles National Forest. I wish I’d had a wider angle lens for this picture, and I also wish I’d been there later in the day when the flower would have been facing the camera. But you take pictures with the equipment you have, not the equipment you wish you had.
