2015—A Walk On The Wild Side

While Mady dragged me along the trails at Miner’s Ravine Saturday afternoon, I managed to get her to stop long enough so I could take a few shots of the wildflowers in bloom before she continued her relentless tugging at the leash. Most of the wildflowers we saw were shades of purple.  We saw an Elegant Brodiaea with a skipper feeding on it.  Next, we saw a field of Ithuriel’s Spear followed by a field of vetch and one of lupine.  A lone stalk of Ithuriel’s Spear was visited by a pipevine swallowtail.  It was nice to see so many wildflowers in bloom in the midst of our drought.

    Beautifully shot, Carol! I’m so glad there are still wildflowers in California!
