WILD OATS


The sun highlighting this shaft of wild oats caught my attention last week. I thought it would make an interesting picture.
I hope everyone will have a super weekend.
Enlarge the picture to get more detail.

magnifique
"Mon village est au bout
De ce rang isolé
Où le blanc des nuages
Vient toucher l'or des blés"...

beautiful
"My village is at the end
As a single row
Where the white clouds
Just touch the golden wheat "...

Would this be a remnant of "Sowing your (wild) oats?" that some people talk so much about.

It sure is a neat shot with the light bouncing off the grains.

I love summer grass, golden in the light. I called them foxtails when I was a kid - and they stick in your socks :)

That spray looks so graceful. Oats are one of nature's miracles.
