Some wildflowers ... potted:) Does that make them not so wild? I don't know but I love these flowers and I think because their nature is to be wild, they aren't suffering terribly from the heat, although when I do miss a watering they let me know.
This is one of the photos I shot in RAW format. It seems incredibly sharp to me and I don't know if that's because it was shot RAW or if it's because I opened it on the sweet 27" super iMac at work rather than the puny 13" Macbook and I can simply see better. I've heard various things about shooting RAW vs Jpeg and I just need to learn and experiment more.
