Late Spring Flora
A trip to the Fen yesterday rewarded me with images of flowers from late spring.
Bodacious bumblebee buzzes blooming betony
Small white ladyslipper - an endangered species
Wild hyacinth (Camassia scilloides).
Pablo recently posted a nice shot of a relative of this from Missouri
The blue wood phlox hardly bloomed at all this year. I blame the cold spring.
Golden Alexandars are everywhere this year
Jacob's ladder. One of my favorite spring wildflowers.
I can't do an entire Fen post without insects.
Baltimore Checkerspot caterpillars devouring foxglove penstemon.
Caterpillar Closeup. It's another Baltimore Checkerspot.
