Many of the spring wildflowers appear in early April and only last a week or so. The Bloodroot is one of these, and has a very pure-white blossom. Each plant has just one 3-lobed leaf and one blossom. Toward the end of each day, the blossom begins to close, and the leaf folds around itself to resist the evening coolness. I shot this one in sunset light, closeup at about 2x zoom.

I second squirls' comments. Beautifully photographed with excellent detail and just the right amount of blur in the background.

Thanks for the compliments guys! Now, just a few days later, the bloodroots are gone for another whole year. My favorite photographers saying "be there" definitely applies.
