Surviving High Sierra
One of my favorite spots for photographing Showy Milkweed and its insect visitors is now a parking area for festival personnel. In most years, aggressive weed eating eliminates the milkweeds a few days before the people arrive. I took pleasure today in finding a place they missed. In fact, the parking police seemed intrigued by what I was doing, and when I showed them what an incredible fragrance is given off by the milkweed, I think it made their day. As I continued on down the road, I saw in my rear view mirror one of the guys with an official vest leading others to smell the flowers.
