After walking a few trails at a favorite lady’s slipper location, and finding plenty budded up it was time to head home. As I drove past Atkins Reservoir I noticed this little island illuminated by the sun rising above the tree line.
The shadowed background was what allowed it to have a glow and I was fortunate in my timing to have a few minutes before the sun hit those trees too.
My annual May vacation for Spring flower prowling starts this weekend and I am counting on those buds for subjects. Painted Trilliums are late so maybe some of those too.
