Thanks Bo. They are the ones I most look forward to seeing. Part of that is because of where they grow here: their bloom also signals the time when at least the lower end of the forest trails are open.
I will have to take a look at that book. Yes, I have a lot of wildflower photos, but I’m far from having the scientific knowledge of them to do a creditable job with a book about them. It would be fun to do with a real botanist though!
I always finish spring with a hundred new trillium photos. The buds have an endless number of different expressions. On the day I took these, there were only buds, none in full bloom. Today was very warm and tomorrow will be as well. I must return to that spot on the next dry day and get some shots of them in full bloom (as though I needed more trillium photos!).
Thanks Jeff! Trilliums are just so much fun to photograph, and I also enjoy the challenge of shooting them in their natural setting. They are very photogenic! I may have some prints made of the trilliums. I’ve only had a few prints made so far. Some were of the little Pigmy owl, and those turned out gret!
Some wildflowers are more than just a flower. Apart from their beauty, they may also mean “Spring is finally here” or “This is where summer begins” etc. and I agree with you – one can’t get too many photos of them.
