I really like the first one jonny. I know your a wildflower fan - Banning State Park down by Sandstone is FULL of trillium right now. I'm tempted to head down there tomorrow.

Sweet shots, Jonny!

Ohhh, trillium are so cool. We only have the nodding trillium up here in the boreal forest. Mike, do you know which species of trillium are at Banning?

Steve,

They're all large-flowered trillium. I was there with students for a geology trip and they were thick in places. A nice overcast day could make for some wonderful shots. I was kicking myself that I didn't have my camera. If you happen to go, they were in the woods on the way to the boat landing on the kettle river and there were a few thick sections right by the river next to the boat landing. *If you are tempted to head down, let me know - we can carpool.

Thanks, Mike. Tucked into my pack are LiteDisc diffuser discs. No sun too strong for those! gringrin

Much as I'd love to head south for trillium, I have a guided excursion tomorrow, a wedding tomorrow night, and another excursion on Sunday.

Guess I'll rest when I retire! Sure wish I was trillium-bound. gringrin

Wouldn't mind getting in on some of Jonny's sweet bloodroot, either, but time seems to be fleeing in front of me.

Thankyou for the great photo's

I remeber some years ago I planted a whole bunch of those blood root plants in a yard for a landscape customer(folage verry simular to Ligulairia but larger). I loved the folage the plant had and how large they got, I had no idea they they had blooms like that.

A time after that, I find myself in situations where I wanted to use them. Fore the life of me I keep forgeting the name. Being lazy, I substitute for a differant plant.

After reading this post I have written the name down putting it in safe keeping.

Again, Thankyou

thanks guys!....Steve,that diffuser certainly would be a great idea for those bright "in the sun" shots...I fully realize some of the images are a "tat" blown out in the flowers petals whites ...I usually try and find a plant somewhat in the shade but ,at times,I like the colors and brightness the sun adds to the overall "look"...tough to do both sometimes....the pics here were taken at about 11:00 approaching the harshest time of day for sunlight....only thing in my favor is that the trees above somewhat broke the harshness of the direct sunlight on some of the photos ...hmmmm....maybe a piece of "tyvak" or someting one could roll up in your pocket would work as a diffuser grin......Steve,the bloodroots are just starting to bloom along the creek here near Carey Lake....certainly welcome to come along and take some shots and the nodding trilliums are also along the same trail(hundreds of them)....I also found large flowered bellworts and sessile-leaved bellworts(wild oats) blooming in the same area(both yellow lilly type flowering plants)...and "white sweet violets"....plus others yesterday.... grin.........plus a few birds of course!...I walked about 3 1/2 miles with my tripod/digiscope (fully extended) and 2 other cameras over my shoulder yesterday....it works for me grin

these violets are only a little over 1/4" across!...

I think these are "Choke Cherries".....

    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
