Scavenger Hunt Sunday

 It's time for Scavenger Hunt Sunday again!  Here are my interpretations...


Leaves have been slow to change color around here, and the (two...yes, two) trees in our yard seem to be the last to change in our neighborhood no matter what the season--the last to be dressed for fall, the last to shed leaves for winter, the last to bloom in the spring.  True to form, the leaves in our yard are still this next photo is a leaf from our neighbor's yard.

I didn't notice the spider's web until I pulled the photo up on my you see it, faintly, in the upper left quadrant?

Your mood today

Robert (16) has been driving to and from his weekly guitar lesson, but Jason has always been the one to go with him...until last week, when Jason attended a conference.  It's about a 30-minute drive, and this was the first time Robert had driven with me for more than 15 minutes at a time (he has his learner's permit).  It was also the first time he drove with Josiah (11) and Grace (7) in the car...He did well, but  my mood was, admittedly, at least a little apprehensive.  This was my view during the drive, dashboard reflection and all:

And, on the way, Robert pretended in a pretty convincing way that he had made a wrong turn, since he knew the way and I didn' I took a picture of the trickster.  (Yes, he has his father's sense of humor.)


I went with friends from church to the Women of Faith conference.  It was, of course, dark during the CeCe Winans concert Friday night.


This was the sweet and silly little face that welcomed me home after we came back from the conference:

Depth of Field

I couldn't decide which one to pick, so I'm including a few for this prompt.  These are the last of my zinnia blooms for the year...

There are lots of little white flowers in the back half of my neighbor's backyard...growing among the ragweed and golden rod

...and here's a bee I stalked at an unsafe distance until I got a good shot of him.

Your set is great. That single leaf shot is really cool. - That's funny about the trees in your yard being the last to change color or leaf out in the spring.
Oh teenage drivers...I remember those days. Yep "apprehensive" is a good word to describe one's mood when they are learning to drive.
What a sweet little face that welcomed you home.
Your concert shot for dark was great.
Loved all your DOF shots.
