This seems like an unusually good year for spring flowers. Today I photographed at The Cox Reservation of the Essex County Greenbelt and the Essex-Manchester Conservation Land. I especially like the tiny gems, no greater than one inch across. On Sunday, May 19, I’ll be leading a wildflower photography workshop at The Garden In the Woods in Framingham, MA. There are a few spaces left!
Tonight in the woods not far from where I live, I found a secret patch of highbush blueberries sporting their lovely pink-white flowers. I’ll be back in late July to pick the fruit! As I set up my camera a beaver splashed his mighty tail and patrolled his pond, apparently unaware of my presence.

Today, I ventured to Cape Ann hoping to make some interpretive wildflower photographs. These would be more more dreamy than some of my earlier work. One image here is unidentified. Can you help?
I spotted these wildflowers a couple of days ago while running in the woods near my home in the Boston area. Today I returned to the forest with a Nikon, a 30 inch reflective umbrella, an SB-800 Speedlight and a coiled flash extension cord. I could not have made the shot at f13 in the windy dark forest without the strobe. The only trouble is, I can’t identify the flower. Can you? It could be an invasive, which would explain why I can’t find it in my field guides.
