We’ve needed rain and got a little this morning while I was at Hawley Bog. Very little. But that didn’t stop me from getting soaked. The bushes and tall grass were leaning over the boardwalk and heavy with the mist/drizzle we received overnight. I waterproofed my boots but that could hold back the drenching from the plants. It was worth being wet to spend a few minutes with the pitcher plants and a nice stalk of Canada Lily.
There were not too many pitchers near the boardwalk where we are required to stay but one or two were in a good position to shoot. I lay on my side for this Purple Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea) as well as a few more yet to come.
Very different lighting with this one seen a few years back. There are also some orchids, one of which seen in the linked post as well, but again not as many and they are only just starting to develop.
While shooting this, I thought I heard a cascade or waterfall in the distance, but it was just the rain heading in my direction across the bog. I don’t get off the ground like I used to, so got a little more soaked but happily so. Spray can boot waterproofing is only so effective and my jeans are like a sponge.
