05.27.2019 Three more of the loverlies

Unlike the claim I made for Atherton Brook images, I won’t say these are the last.  They are pretty hard to resist and there is always something a little different.  Subtleties don’t always get notice though.

Two heads are better than one

And Junior is all grown up.

I walked a favorite location this morning where in the past I would photograph several Yellow Lady’s Slippers.  Sadly, only one appears to be blooming this year.  Good hike though which is why we go out in the first place.

  1. That Painted Trillium is beautiful too, I’ve never seen one

  2. Someday when I’m in your part of the world, I would enjoy taking a walk with you. I know I would learn a lot.

    Do the twisted leaves of the lady’s slipper lengthen as the plant matures? Or might it be just a variation among plants? I noticed that the leaves of the yellow one seem much longer than those of the plants with the pink flowers. Those green pine needles are a nice little grace note, too: a reminder that spring isn’t happening only on the ground.

    • Those are sepals, Linda. Not all lady’s slippers have them as prominent as these.The pink leaves are basal while the yellows grow on the stem. Ha! Now I have an excuse to post another showing that. 🙂 Yes, spring is everywhere. Those green needles on the ground are for the most part courtesy of the recent winds.

    What incredible beauties they are! One reservation – the first photo, for me, feels too defined and saturated. I find myself wondering what it would look like in black and white, or softened somehow. But maybe the flowers would not show up well then. The last photo, with its more restricted palette, appeals to me more….but to each their own, right? 🙂

    • Yep, individual interpretation but this isn’t far off from how it was, Lynn. I may try it in black and white as I have a series I work on processing flowers in monochrome. Sometimes, especially I have found with Painted Trilliums, the more colorful as delightful as they are work quite well converted.

    Lovely, every single one of them. I really hope Jr. returns for you.

    • Ah, thanks for looking, Eliza. It would be nice but at least I have this picture. 🙂 I’ll be looking for the others soon, maybe today even. Got to make the most of this down time as it looks like I’ll be going back to work next week or soon thereafter.
