Purple loosestrife, early morning, during the heatwave.
Something slightly strange about the depth of field - making the plant look like a mirage, almost. Appropriate, though.
If it captures just a little of the joyously refreshing sight that the flower was, it will have done well!
Fascinated to find that in Oregon purple loosestrife is seen as an invader that needs to be controlled in order to protect local species.
