what’s blooming in the north preserve

Almost nine miles (8.64) of hiking in the North Preserve yesterday revealed wildflowers galore! The same but more of what I posted on March 6th and March 7th along with new sightings. There were some nice large areas of Poppies and Lupine on the Tom’s Thumb trail but we got there before they opened. They were scarce in the Rock Knob area but I definitely see evidence of plants so it may the last area to pop out.

Photographers FYI: Most Preserve flowers are VERY small so take a macro lens.

  1. Marianne,

    Great shot! I’m amazed at the DOF you achieved at f/2.8. Even if you were perfectly set up 90 degrees to the subject …wow! you gotta have a secret!


  2. Thanks, Howard! I do try to remember to be as parallel as possible but I’m really surprised too. I think it has something to do with the distance I am from the subject but I can really only attribute it to the Canon 100 (their new version).

  3. Outstanding. You labeled a few more I could not identify. See you on the Spur Cross WF hike 3/27.
