I’m not sure the type of flower this is. I had it stored away in my files, but decided to post it tonight.

I found this unusual looking plant recently near a Southwest Michigan lake. I’d be interested to see if anyone knows what this might be :)

Field of Forever

I found this field of flowers that seemed to stretch on forever when I went out yesterday. It’s amazing what we can find practically in our backyards if we just take the time to go out and look :)

The Beauty of Joe-Pye Weed

I found this Joe-Pye Weed (Eutrochium) growing in a local wetland yesterday. The name of the plant originates from Joe Pye (Jopi in the native tongue) who was a Native American healer in the New England area during the early 1800’s. He used the plant to treat fevers.

Scenic Moment

I found this flower in an Ottawa County, Michigan field yesterday afternoon. I used my Canon 200mm F-2.8L lens to get in close and have nice separation from the green background. (click on this or any of my images to see enlarged more detailed versions)

A Taste of the Sun

I walked past this flower, but its glow caught the corner of my eye and I went back to investigate. It was beautifully illuminated by the sun. I decided to use my Canon 50mm F-2.5 lens to reveal the details and vibrant colors of the flower, including orange, yellow, green and pink.

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.
