04.26.2020-2 Trout Lily

Figured you would like a break from the water images.  Don’t worry…there are more.

Trout Lily, Dogtooth Violet, Yellow Trout-lily, American Trout-lily, Eastern Trout-lily, Yellow Dogtooth Violet, Adder’s Tongue-Erythronium americanum

Not quite ripe as the stigma and anthers should be visible.  Maybe tomorrow.

  1. I think the number of affectionate nicknames is an indication of how much a person or thing is admired. Seems to work here.

    The lovely lily seems to be taking a bow with her appreciative audience in the background. Another feat of fine framing.

    It’s always fun to see and capture these in various stages of bloom. Beautifully done, and nicely composed with the background.

    • Thanks, Todd. I’ve made images with the anthers and stigma showing and generally prefer the flower to be mature but these are so pretty that any stage works well. They have such a seemingly shy personality.

    Beautiful – I especially like the lines running down the petals.

    I hear rumors of trout lilies in east and northeast Texas — and, in some cases, there have been actual reports, with photos. Unfortunately, I don’t know exactly where to find them, and two-day trips for serious exploration are off the schedule just now. Still, this is a good reminder to keep my eyes open in east Texas generally. Not only is the flower beautiful, those leaves should be easily identifiable.

    • When the time comes, I hope that you are able to find them. If they grow as prolifically there as they do here I would imagine there are people who would share a location since they wouldn’t be threatened.

    Beautiful, Steve – I like the blurred ones in the background, and the leaf is so perfectly toned.
