Not quite as sharp as I'd like--I'm blaming the mat of poison ivy I had to stand in--but a neat wildflower, nonetheless.

excellent. Lovely and profound. I think the yellow part of the flower got greenish because of the increase of saturation. If that is what happened, then you should try to exclude the yellow part in photoshop from the saturation adjustment. Again, I love it

Nice flower. This must be from the mountains, right?

Thanks for the hints and comment--I definitely think you're right in that the while the flower does have some green in it, the naked eye really processes "yellow" in the field.

Ha, this is actually a rough and tumble South Knox bloom--Indian Pink likes neutral to alkaline ("sweet") soils, so all that karst comes in handy. (FWIW, it's actually behind a house we're renovating down in Lake Forest, close to the new Urban Wilderness natural areas...a quick survey turned up yellow trillium and false Solomon's seal as well, though it appears that I will be fighting amur honeysuckle for the rest of my years.)

Very pleasing bokeh. I don't think I have ever seen one of these.

Beautiful plant. Please tell me you are not sitting there scratching at poison ivy pustules? Makes me quiver just to think about it.

Thanks for the comments, guys...it is a pretty rare plant at least in these parts, perhaps more common on the calcareous soils of prairieland. At any rate, I'm afraid poison ivy is an occupational hazard if you're drawn to wild trout streams and out of the way places!
