Stealthy Steps

I laughed finding these plants shaped like shamrocks.  Early in the summer a young man camping near me was in search of the powerful Four-leaf-clover. I asked him if he had found one,  each day when I saw him. He waited for me to return from fishing the day he did find one through lots of effort. I hope his good luck continued throughout the summer.

  1. The dragonfly and butterfly photos are fantastic! I have never seen shamrock shaped water lily leaves! Nice! Love the story of the young man seeking four leaf clovers. Love ANY story about young people caring to spend time in nature!

  2. Hi Steve - lovely shots... I'm seeing dragon and damsel flies around at the moment, and late butterflies and big fat bees ... and then when I was in Canterbury yesterday going up the scaffolding of the Cathedral ... the wasps were in abundance.

    Love seeing the wild shots ... country life - perhaps one day I'll get back to that way of living ... cheers Hilary

  11. I have looked for four leafed clovers before and I've never found one, not even other plants shaped like one.
