"Delicate Owl Clover."

The dainty owl clover shows delicate pink bracts (modified leaves) above smallish, yellow trumpet-shaped flowers. Behind the lens. It was a blazing hot June afternoon of bighorn sheep photography. But I kept getting distracted by these delicate little flowers appearing in clumps here and there among the grasses. So I finally gave in and broke out the 105mm macro lens, trading time with rams for time on my hands and knees with wildflowers. As the saying goes, there's no cure for curiousity.
