Flower in a flower

Today’s fishin’ trip yielded more photos than fish, but who could pass this up! The fish will still be there next time I visit.


  1. I couldn’t have passed it up. But then, I don’t even go out to garden without my camera.

    Do you still have snow in the mountaintops?

    • I’ve gotten like that too. I spent much more time with the camera than I did fishing although I did catch the limit on that stream. After I hiked to it, the stream I wanted to fish was still too high but I found some flowers along it that were new to me.

      There are some snow banks on all of the higher mountains and quite a bit left on the real tall ones on the north sides.

  2. Now, that is flower power! Have lovely the perky butterfly in the daisy. Butterfly smiling for the camera? 🙂

    • “Flower power”: I like that! It was perky, didn’t sit still long.

  3. That’s a perfect shot! I’ve never gotten a good b-fly shot.

    • I’ve found that to get good butterfly shots you have to depend entirely on luck.

  4. Oh – how true is that?
    Lovely capture Terry!

  5. I think this butterfly was watching you rather closely. He doesn’t look too sure of you and appears apprehensive of your actions. Great capture.

    • I had a very hard time getting close to this one until I think he finally just got curious.

  6. Aww. pretty nice fishing trip.

    • Yup. Three nice brown trout and a dozen photos all in one stretch of about a hundred yards of river.

  7. I think I prefer the photos! 🙂

    • There’s always time for both. I have some friends who really love little brook trout though and so I always try to catch a dozen or so for them. I prefer larger ones that we can cook on the grill.

      • cooking them on the grill would make all the fishing worthwhile…though I would have to have someone else do all the cleaning!

  8. I love this little daisy allowing a butterfly to rest for a bit! And an ant cooling itself in the shade under a petal! (or hiding from the b’fly!) You got a grand slam on this one! So sorry you didn’t get the fish….but in my eyes you definitely got a prize! 😉

    • That’s along a small stream that I have fished ever since in the 40’s. I go there now to bring back a dozen or so small brook trout for an old friend who loves to eat them but can no longer fish herself. On many trips though I end up with more photos than fish. It’s still a beautiful place and it hold lots of great memories for me.
