Over the past few days, I’ve hiked a nearby, natural Missouri prairie, looking for wildflowers. One of the prevalent blooming wildflowers at this time is the Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis), which is one of my favorite, late-spring wildflowers. In the first 2 images, you can see the remains of a heavy dew on the plants. The 3rd image was taken on a subsequent day, when the morning dew was minimal. All 3 images were made early in the morning, before the rising sun rose over the surrounding woods and fell onto the prairie. I love to photograph the wildflowers at this time of the day, as the lighting is very even and allows the rich colors to be seen in the flowers:
I”ve got a few more wildflowers to feature in another, upcoming post.
