A Scarce Plant – Indian Pipe

I photographed this grouping of Indian Pipe plant today in Southwest Michigan. This plant is known to be generally scarce or rare in occurrence and was the first time I’ve seen it myself. This white plant does not contain chlorophyll. Being a parasitic plant, it derives its energy from fungi hosts. They flower from summer through early Autumn.

Photographing butterflies has always been a fun and interesting experience. I was happy to get detailed photos of these two.    “The butterfly is a flying flower, The flower a tethered butterfly.” French lyric poet ― Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

This time of year is great for photographing flowers in Southwest Michigan. I found this daisy in a field of yellow flowers while an insect was pollinating it. If you click on the image you can see a bit more detail in an enlarged version :)

I found a few isolated chicory plants today growing in an Ottawa County, Michigan field covered with yellow flowers. After photographing one with the field as a backdrop, I noticed another with an insect pollinating the blue flower and took the opportunity to capture the moment :)

I found this tiny insect on the top of a golden colored flower today in Ottawa County, Michigan. I estimate the insect was about 1/8 inch (3.175mm) which necessitated the use of my Canon 50mm F-2.5 macro lens.
