I was not carrying my camera and had only my iPhone. However, the sun was bright, there was lots of glare, and I'm not very good at taking pictures with my phone. Thus, the above result. Focused on the background, but not the flower. After several more failed attempts, I got the photo below. That one was clear enough that I was later able to identify the flower as Mountain Pink. I also discovered that many different, unrelated flowers go by that same common name. Thus, the scientific name, Dianthus armeria. Other common names for this one are Deptford Pink and Grass Pink. But, what's in a name?

Hidden below the tops of the dried grass was an attractive spread of blooming Orchard Morning Glory, known by people who don't like it as Bindweed. I experimented with composition.
