Starflowers

Other than witch hazel, spring wildflowers are still weeks away. Here’s a wildflower from last year, starflower (Trientalis borealis):

Starflower blooms in the deep woods, under the canopy. In my area, they are a May wildflower. Last year I found a wooded hillside with hundreds of them, and madeimages of groups of flowers like this one. A curious flower, they have seven petals, seven sepals, and seven leaves radiating from the stem.

  1. Very nice image, Tom. I particularly like the play between the subject flower and the two oof ones in the background. It pulls the image together nicely.

  2. Thomas, your macro are really beautiful, although there I would say that usually you do have more light and colors in your pictures šŸ˜‰ This is just to tease you a bit.
