I am fascinated by these fuzzy red flowers growing in my wife’s garden. I believe they are called bee balm. I suppose they are so named because they nourish the bodies and souls of the bees that visit them. I think the flowers are past their prime right now and so they look a little bedraggled. Thus the title today. They look a little like my kids looked when they woke up when they were little – hair all over the place.
I took this photo with my Canon 70-200mm zoom and was once again impressed with its ability to smoothly blur things in the background – especially when I’m shooting with a 2.8 aperture.
I’m not sure this is a good photograph, but I like the fading red flower. If it had a face, it would probably look a little confused.
