Yellow trout lily

Now that spring has sprung, it’s amazing how quickly life comes to the forest floor.

Consider the yellow trout lily. This delightful ephemeral flower appears as soon as the weather gets warm and disappears when it gets hot. In that time, the trout lily will leaf out, bloom, proliferate a bit and go to seed. All that work within just a few weeks. How delightfully efficient.

I took this photo with my 105 macro lens at 100 mm, ISO 100, f/13, 1/5 sec.
