Trillium Season!

I took the dogs for a walk in the woods. It's been our first sunny day in awhile and the trillium are in full bloom. I was able to get a few neat pictures. Here's a pink painted trillium.



Reflections in the pond. I think this photo looks like an abstract painting. I was walking near the water and heard a big "kersplash!" and saw a redtail hawk swooping over the water. He was trying to nab one of a pair of ducks -- or maybe their ducklings? -- that were nesting there. Of course, it all happened too fast to have the camera ready.



I really like the dramatic backlighting in this one!



Here's a trillium with some groovy colorful toadstools.



I just love this time of year!

Thank you Nancy, for the flowers. It is very late & I checked some blogs to settle down. I had to have my oldest horse euthanized today. A very long day, and the trilliums on your blog gave me an idea for a marker. This was my first time, and it has been a test of strength.

Aw, so sorry to hear this, Heather. It is tough to lose an old friend. I'm glad the timing was right for me to post the trillium. I hope that the coming summer will bring you some comfort.

What gorgeous photos! How can anyone not love that time of year?

It's like a forest in some disney movie.. especially the fungi on the tree.
