From Buds to Blooms

After our recent cold snap and snow, yesterday I went back to the nearby woodlands where I love to photograph spring woodland wildflowers. As I had suspected, the Virginia Bluebells were really beginning to burst into bloom. I couldn’t “weed out” my favorite images, so I decided to feature these 6 images. See if you can pick out a favorite:

I’ll be spending more time at this wonderful place over the next few weeks as more wildflowers are beginning to poke through the leaf litter. And May Apples are up and actively growing, but no “apples” yet. It appears they are trying to move the calendar “up” :o)

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon EF180mm, f/3.5 macro lens
  • Gitzo 1258-LVL carbon fiber tripod, with Kirk Ent. HD ballhead
  • ISO 400
  • Aperture f/3.5 to f/16 (changed to get varying depth of field)
  • Shutter 1/20 sec. to 1/200 sec.
