A very interesting floral. I have a red one that comes up each spring similar to this. My hubby always wants to mow over it. I tell him not to because they are beautiful. I have had my house 15 years and its blooms every year if I guard it from the lawn mower. I hope to get a picture of it soon and maybe you can tell me what it is. Nice job John

Thank florl looks scarey LOL
AWSOME detail lighting color, Beautiful capture!!!

Morel are VERY tasty, a delicacy here, VERY expensive if you buy them about 30-40 dollars a lb (if not more).
It's fun hunting them, and we usually hunt for about 3 weeks around my bday through the 2nd week of may, has been a bit cold yet, so we will be finding more as it rains and warms up more

G'DAY is RIGHT! WOW! This is so pretty and unusual, John. At least for me. I have never seen a plant/flower like this one.

Love how we see color in the BG at the top and then gradually fading to black at the bottom. Very well done!

HEY JOHN! You should see our mail box today. Instead of spring we have high winds, and snow drifts. I shot a picture for you and Pat R and Chris and ALL mail boxers... I will post it later today.

Great job!!!
