Today’s post features one of Missouri’s earliest blooming, woodland wildflower … the Harbinger of Spring (aka, “Pepper and Salt”).
While hiking the woodland trails of Ha Ha Tonka State Park (in the Missouri Ozarks) last week, I found this small, and often overlooked wildflower blooming adjacent to the woodland trail I was hiking. I captured 17 images of this clump, varying the focal point on the wildflower. Later, I stacked all 17 images into a single image, using Helicon Focus software:
Coming up … more woodland wildflowers that were photographed on this hike.
