red clover, Trifolium pratense

Shooting fish in a barrel. But that old saying doesn't mean the fish aren't worth having. If you look in just about any sunny area, you will find red clover. Just get down on the ground, line things up, and you've got another wildflower image. It doesn't need to be just any old image, if you lie down with the sun behind the flower and get close. Next thing you know you've got a shot worth taking. And when you're done, you can suck the nectar out of the flowers. Tasty fish! Why did we ever stop doing that? Red clover is a Eurasian and north African native, now found in every state and province and on SPM. Lenawee Co MI, 6/15/18.
