Here is a close look at an almost opened American Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum) from a few weeks back.

  4. As usual, you managed to get a lot in focus, which is hard to do when you’re so close.

  5. Really pretty pic of the trout lily. It is much showier than the trout lilies where I live. It’s nice to learn that you will have some time to devote to snapping away.

    I especially like the way the lavender in the petals ties together with the lavender and green background. Whether you worked for that (as I suspect) or it was happenstance, it’s beautiful.

    I hope your subjects didn’t get their little petals nipped. A friend in NY state saw 28F a couple of nights ago, and I saw that frost warnings edged right up to you. Here’s to more sunshine and warmth, both for you and for your subjects!


    • The lavender in the background was noticed but not planned at first. After a test shot I liked it and made sure it was included. Thanks.

      We just missed a frost the last few days, Linda. We had one morning with 34° but the frost didn’t materialize because of the gentle breeze. The next week is going to be a warm one with the possibility of some showers during the afternoon on a few days.
