Default Pasting text into VBA macro?

This recorded VBA macro inserts a specific picture into A22 and resizes
it to 85% of its original size.

Sub InsertPicture_Gf4()
'
Range("A30").Select
ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert( _

"C:\Users\terry\Dropbox\FinishedWalks\20170809Day0 2Trevone-Porthcothan-J-u502-red-m8.8-Gf4-Elev.jpg"
_
).Select
Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight 0.85, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
Application.CommandBars("Format Object").Visible = False
Rows("27:27").Select
End Sub

But how can I edit that so that the filename
"C:\Users\terry\Dropbox\FinishedWalks\20170809Day0 2Trevone-Porthcothan-J-u502-red-m8.8-Gf4-Elev.jpg"
is replaced by whatever text is on the clipboard please?

I'm curious how the file path gets in the ClipBoard...
