Wild Thing

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 7 August 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This weedy little patch seemed to celebrate the leaf that is turned such a lovely color. I see a circle of light around it, and this was my favorite image that day in the burned forest. Actually I really love this little patch of wildness.

I just know one of you will say its Poison Ivy, so I'm saying it first. And it is not!

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Beautiful image and so well spotted Joyce, you title reminded me of the Troggs song of the same name and the lyric "wild thing you make my heart sing..." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m10Ypl2pDA unfortunately the lead singer Reg Presley, who was from down here in Somerset passed away last year, a real character that is missed

@Doug: It is interesting what comes to mind when I title things. I did have that song there on file, as well as a movie for children with that name in the title. Thanks Doug.

@Catherine: One day an AM3 blogger posted a funny photo and chose the title: "Silly Tuesday," which simply became a habit with everyone. It's the day that you can post a goof or a bad photo, or a funny photo. You can do anything you want!

I like how well it stands out from the surrounding leaves. Excellent choice. I can see why it was a favorite of that day.

It is wonderful to see something (or someone) that is different, that stands alone in a crowd, in its shining glory!
Super sighting, Joyce!
