July 27 - Rose Gentian in Busiek State Forest

Last Wednesday, the weather cooled off a bit and I rushed out to Busiek as quick as I could after work for a short hike.

I've been wanting to photograph a rose gentian for a while and finally got my chance during the hike. I didn't notice at the time that 4 anthers were missing from the top flower. Oh well, these flowers are pretty small, and it was an easy oversight.


  1. I thought you forgot to use spell check; anthers wer? But I can understand it when I play "see whats missing" on the top flower. This looks like the start of a Great Blog.

  2. Thanks! That should have been "anthers were" - I'll have it changed shortly.
