So pretty. We, too, have lots of white, but I don’t remember red and purple in our area. (In fact, the USDA map shows this beauty in Texas, but only in two counties.) If I were a bee, I think I’d like this one!
Such a beautiful image, Terry.
I like the blur of another one in the background too. More and more, I find I like this sort of composition and DOF of flowers as opposed to one single bloom in sharp focus on it’s own.
I think I remember it in the forests above the rim. The surrounding of this particular one are very lush this year because of all of the rain we have been having. The trail was overgrown with low bushes and grasses, all of which were covered by raindrops. I got very wet and loved every second of it!
I grew-up with red and white clover in the yards and fields of my childhood and never gave much thought to the flowers themselves…but then became fascinated with the blossoms as an adult. They’re quite wonderful for such a common plant.
