Clematis and Liatris

Clematis drummondii Strands on Liatris mucronata Flowers 1455A

Another thing I found in, and even on, the blazing-star, Liatris mucronata, in the field at the corner of Metric Blvd. and Howard Ln. on October 9 was our old friend Clematis drummondii. I still think its strands at this stage look like plastic-coated copper wires. Okay, the strands may not be metallic, but during a good part of the year they’re current and I always get a charge out of them. Positively.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that points 1, 2, 9 and 15 in About My Techniques are relevant to this photograph. If you’re interested in wordplay, you’ll get your share of it on this site.


I’m out of town for a few days, so please forbear if it takes me a while to answer comments.
