05.25.2019 Thrillium

These are the most beautiful of our spring wildflowers, at least according to me.  I love the Lady’s Slippers and look forward to them every year, but these are tops. It’s a challenge, after photographing dozens of these at least, … Continue reading

05.23.2016 Thrillya with some Trillia

Quadrillium, thrillium…why not thrillya and trillia? Unless something really special presents itself, this will be the last for 2016. One reason I like photographing these so much is the variability of the petal edges. This one really appealed for its … Continue reading

05.19.2014 Another Painted Trillium but from a different location.

I’m not sure if this is the last…maybe there will be more.  It is from a different location…I’ve not made images there before…but it is just a half mile from yesterday’s spot.  Same road, different tract of land. I am … Continue reading

05.18.2014 The Aforementioned PTs

I visited two locations on Saturday looking for the Painted Trilliums.  The first was in Pelham along the Cadwell Memorial Forest trail where I photographed this one a few years back…I’m sure Andrew remembers it.  After two days of rain, … Continue reading

05.19.2013 One flower and another….

Sorry.  I am just not as good at coming up with snappy titles as are most of my friends.  Every once in a while I think of a good one, but mostly…meh.  I should be writing science abstracts. 🙂 I … Continue reading

05.01.2013 Painted Trillium in Monochrome

I said I’d post a color image next, but that was followed by a challenge by one Ms. Lottie who said flowers should be in color.  While I certainly can’t argue that the colors of flowers are beautiful, it is … Continue reading
