Incoming NFC goes to Google Plus instead of receiving photos

    If I beam photos (using NFC) to my wife's Samsung Note 2, it works flawlessly.

    But when my wife beams photos to my Nexus 5, my Nexus 5 immediately goes to Google Plus, and the beam terminates without displaying any error. No photos are transferred.

    In both cases, we're using the built-in Photos app, and the receiving phone is on the home screen.

    How can I get my phone to accept the photos?

    More information:
    Samsung Android version 4.1.2.
    Nexus 5 Android version 4.4.2.
    Neither phone has been rooted.
    Both phones have NFC and S Beam (Samsung) or Android Beam (Nexus) turned on.
