Jack’s Back!

Today’s post features one of my favorite spring, woodland wildflowers, the Jack-in-the-Pulpit.

Every spring, when I begin making my almost-daily woodland hikes in search of finding wildflowers to photograph, I always spend some time checking out the hilly slopes, in hopes of finding the Jack-in-the-Pulpit. This unusual wildflower can be quite difficult to spot. In fact, many times I looked right at them for a while before I spotted them. The green color of the Jack acts as a superb camouflage as it “hides” among other, green woodland plants.

Here are a couple of images of my first-of-year Jack:

Yesterday, I traveled to a new location and found literally “hundreds” of Jacks. After I download and edit the images, I may have some more Jacks to feature.
