Serenity Sunday: Rock Harlequin

I haven’t done a Serenity post in quite a while, and it’s about time.  About a week and a half ago  we were up at the cabin and had a hike in the new-forestation project that has occupied so much of our resources and attention lately.  One wildflower in particular stood out amid  the jungle of sapling poplars.  Its common name is Rock Harlequin, and its taxonomic name is Corydalis sempervirens.  Happy Sunday!

      You are so welcome, Jackie! I’m really looking forward to seeing you next year too, and we’ll be sending potential dates well in advance so that as many as possible will be able to come. And thanks a lot for the high compliments!

  2. Great colour…nature does a great job (and the photographer too)

    She sure does, David, and she astounds me again and again, often when I’m least expecting it.

  4. A portrait worthy of this colorful wildflower. In central Texas we have one species of Corydalis, monochromatic rather than two-tone, that people have dubbed scrambled eggs:

    Beautiful capture, Gary. Love the colors and light. Very serene indeed…

    The dark background really helped, and just as I was getting ready to shoot, a thin cloud crossed the sun, softening its otherwise direct and much harsher light. Thanks, Emily!
