Fleabane ~ Macro Monday

While out watching the bluebirds today I noticed this weed in the yard. We get these every year but they are so small, the lawnmower always takes care of them.

I took a macro photo and decided to research and identify. And I found it fairly easily, as it is very common around pasture land. The weed is in the daisy family and is called annual fleabane. What a strange name. They grow in small clusters all over the yard.

Some weeds make very attractive flowers. I might try to keep the lawnmower away from this one in the future.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
