I took these photos mostly in a neighbors front yard when I arrived home from work late this afternoon. The sun shone just right that they almost seemed illuminated. Interestingly, of the three cameras that I own, the smallest of them--a teeny Sony Cyber-Shot that I purchased for $99 two years ago--takes the best close up images with bright colors, such as these. And that's what I used to take these photos. Click any for a larger view.
