Woodland Plant Photography

Springtime is greening time in the woodlands and forests. I look forward each year to search out the beginnings of new, green growths of delicate ferns, flowers, shrubs and more. One of the more unusual woodland plants that one might encounter is the Jack-in-the-Pulpit Plant, a member of the Arisaema genus. There are many different species, each with their own appearances, but they all have a hooded spadix. I think the one I photographed looks a bit like an onion, hence its alternate name, the Bog Onion.

Lastly, I came across this tiny Blue-Eyed Mary flower that had pushed its way up through the ferns to make an appearance to the world.
