What a perfect topic for a photo challenge! Mother Earth is my favorite subject, and I’ve got LOTS of nature photos featured on this blog. Check out my Wisconsin Outdoors and Wilderness pages in the header above for some of my favorites!
Since this is the beautiful, lusty, bright month of May, I think I will highlight one of the woodland ephemeral wildflowers that emerge in my neck of the woods at this time: the Mayapple. Yes, the tiny bud eventually becomes a little green fruit rather like a crab apple, but I hear it’s unwise to eat them in any quantity…because…well, you know… Anyway, here’s one small citizen of Earth, from bud to maturity.
Thank you! I appreciate your visit!
Hope to get in on this one…still trying to settle in.
It’s a great subject with so much to support it!
Nice sequence, Priscilla.
Mille grazie, Stefano!
Those first two are especially interesting, with the little green bud/ball. Lovely sequence.
Thanks, Janet. Getting to know a wildflower and to recognize it in its various stages is quite satisfying to me. I feel like I find a friend along the path so often!
I love these, Priscilla! A couple of the may apples look like little Madonnas.
Hadn’t thought of that! I was thinking more of Dracula with a cloak ’round him. 🙂
Thanks! It’s nice to have them all grouped though they were taken years apart.
It’s funny how that really works sometimes.
Right oN! 🙂
Why, thank you!
