On the trail to the Milkmaids
Took an afternoon walk up the hill from my house, without camera, and wouldn't you know, I saw the flower I had missed on the Keddie Cascades hike last Friday, the California Milkmaids. As soon as I got home, I grabbed the camera and headed back up there. A little tired, I walked slower and saw more. This sequence of photos shows the little scenes i couldn't resist in that short, 50-yard walk to the Milkmaids. From the top, young Bedstraw, two views of a millipede, four views of fungi, two views of centipedes (note, they're fast and were escaping), and finally, two views of the Milkmaids. I'm glad I forgot the camera the first time.
