Blue clematis

It was late evening a few days back when I discovered some Blue clematis in bloom on Munson Creek and because of the increasing darkness, all of the shots I got of them were taken with flash.

I love the way the clematis blossoms usually appear in the forest, as though they were birds flying among the branches

or demurely hiding their faces under their umbrellas.

However, on that evening several were posing with petals wide open, a pose that I had never seen before, giving me a brand new feel for the Blue clematis.
