Just a few photos this week (and hey, didn't I tell ya I'd be updating my blog more often?) from a hike we took today at Rouge River. Just flora pics this time, I'll update with fawna (i.e., my children) at a later date.
I love taking pictures of wildflowers, even if my knees get a little dirty. Most people don't even notice them, I think, they are so small and unassuming. Take this red trillium, for example.
Henning actually spotted these, and they were all hiding at the base of a tree, their heads pointing at the ground. I had to practically unhinge my neck to get this.
Trout lilies are a little more profuse and obvious.
Here's another one from two weeks ago, gettin' it on with the local bee scene.
I finally found some Dutchman's Breeches this week, although not as many as last year.
The bloodroot were still out in force, here with passenger!
And finally, I stumbled upon a sign that the alien invasion has already begun on earth.
Click through and look at the big version of this picture (just go to "all sizes"). It is truly bizarre. The little green alien apartment buildings were all over the place! It has begun! Call Tom Cruise!
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this tromp through the forest. See ya later!
