I walk down along the river with my honey alot and every time I search for new things to photograph. One can only take so many pictures of river shots and water, canyon walls and empty trails. So I search out the birds and the butterflys and anything else that catches my eye or moves in that case.
I was looking for butterflys dancing around, but this year seems to be void of them. I catch a far off glimpse of a yellow swallowtail (at least I think thats what it is) , but nothing close enough to get good shots of. I was headed back to the car, kinda lollygaging and I was running my hand over the tops of this clover field I was walking along. Deep purple, almost black clover, spring bright, pretty purple clover and soft, sweet, pale white clover that the butterflys go crazy for. I was so enjoying the sweet smell in the air and feeling the tops of the flowers brushing my hand… I realized that this was my unexpected gift. I turned back to shoot not knowing if I could capture the essence of a whole patch of clover or not, but I enjoyed it so that I just had to try.
