Location: Palouse region of southeast Washington
I'd just finished setting up my camera on the shoulder of the non-paved road, with gravel on one side of me and a wheat field on the other, when I noticed this lone weed hiding in plain sight.
After I finished taking the photo I had originally stopped to take (which ended up being just okay, but not great), I casually took this photo before I packed everything back into the car and we moved on.
Although I had no way of knowing when the initial decision was made to stop, this photo ultimately made it a worthwhile one! 8^)
