lost my way

It is one of those days when I have lost my way. It started out fine with a leisurely sunrise walk to take photographs. I ventured down the hill from Top of the World, lured by the spikes of yucca, Yucca glauca, flowers standing tall, bathed and glowing in the morning sun. I set about getting an interesting or good shot of the yucca flowers when I noticed that every spike was covered with aphids and a few large ants and ladybugs. That seemed to be the point at which I lost my way. I kept seeing things and then looking closer for the details. Some days this works fine and is a pleasure of discovery. Other days, this seems to be a way to avoid making it from point a to point b on the list of things to do!
