Blue Phlox

During my recent wildflower trek on the Natural Bridge Trail, in Ha Ha Tonka State Park (MO), I ran across several patches of Blue Phlox (aka, Wild Sweet William) just starting to bloom. Here are a couple of images of these blue beauties:

I always love seeing the unfurled petals of the phlox, as it begins to open (above). And a few phlox were observed that had just opened:

Coming up … more wildflowers from my wildflower trek at Ha Ha Tonka State Park.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body

  • Aperture f/3.5
  • Shutter 1/500 sec. and 1/1000 sec.
