Thank you to all for contributing to the discussion yesterday. It was great to hear your opinions. I appreciate that you support my vision.
After leaving the pond, I visited the nearby site where I photographed Greater Fringed Gentian (Gentianopsis crinita formerly Gentiana crinata) which fills the void in late summer for me that is filled in the spring by Painted Trillium. I was slightly early for the full blooms, but the tightly wrapped buds are delightful as well.
I’ll be looking here again over the weekend for some nice blooms.
