“Water Avens and Guest”
“Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.”
― Samuel Johnson
I’m revisiting this interesting flower one more time. When I first discovered it, I was not sure what it was, so I took several photos, hoping to identify it when I got home from my hike.
Sometimes, a surprise awaits, as in this image, which shows the Avens flower very nicely but also includes a guest, in the form of a black beetle merrily eating away at one of the leaves.
It surprises me every time, that I do not notice these little subtleties, while focussing on my primary subject. Of course, since I did not notice it, I also did not try to bring it into focus, which I why it’s a bit soft.
