“Blue Cohosh Buds and Flowers”
“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”
― Anne Frank
A few days a ago I went to a large grove of these early spring bloomers for a few more shots of the unusual tiny purple flowers. This particular grove contains thousands of these plants and the forest floor almost looks burnt with the density of Cohosh growing here, interspersed with freshly emerging trillium and wild leeks.
I had no idea just how complex the structures were until I started shooting them with my 90 mm macro lens and can’t seem to get enough of them.
