Taking in a Wider View - Drooping Trillium
Commonly mistaken for nodding trillium, drooping trillium is fairly common in Ohio, excepting the northeast portion of the state, where I can't remember seeing it. Getting low and close was key again to this shot, which is quite similar to the image of mayapples from Davis Memorial. These three specimens were growing at the base of a tree along a steep hillside, excluding them from deer herbivory. Again, I used flash to add a pop to the undersides of the trillium leaves and flowers.
