I have a hard time leaving the house in the afternoon. Yard work to do or even a football game to watch. Since the Patriots are playing tonight, that made it a little easier. But basically, the momentum was my desire to photograph a Greater Fringed Gentian (Gentianopsis crinita formerly Gentiana crinita) with the petal spread a bit. Despite arriving at 3:30 the sun was already sinking below the tree line and most of the blooms were closing shop for the day. I found this one among the many. It would have been ideal if all the petals were overlapping nicely, but I’m not complaining.
As was the case the other day, the background color is provided by dying plants…..again, I am not complaining. 🙂And a peek inside.For those of you who follow the “rules”, it’s a no-no to have the stem in the corner. 😉
Oops!!! In my excitement at this post, I forgot a title, so you just got the date in your email notice. My bad.
