Spring Beauty #6
I have lain on the ground and observed the huge variety and intricacy of Spring Beauties for over 40 years. You’d think I’d get over it. However, like the song of the American Toad, Spring Beauties announces my official beginning of warm weather. I have over 400 Spring Beauty photographs in my collection (and that’s only the ones that passed my initial screens). SB #6 is particularly of interest in that it not only captures the beauty of the open flower, but also the buds. Finally, if you look closely a beetle can be seen in a poor attempt to hide.
