Trillium in the wind

4 posts in this topic

I'll tell you, photographing taller, limber flowers, even in the forest, when the winds are gusting to 30 mph isn't all that easy. smilesmile

This was captured this morning on the way to the fairy slipper cedar swamp, and it took a lot of waiting around until the flower stilled enough to produce sharp images.

I'd been keeping my eyes open for this locally common species, but it doesn't occur up around the boreal forests in the Ely area, as far as I've seen, and this was the first time I've been in the right place at the right time and seen it flowering in the last several years.

Next, it'll be the red trillium. smilesmile
