Back in 1997 I found some Painted trilliums in the woods in back of the house. At the time I took some nice photos on film. Through the years I’ve gone back to the same spot but never really saw anymore. Earlier this month I found a fox den and spent three hours under camouflage netting by the den hoping to get a photograph of the fox. I ended up with no fox photos but on the trek back home I did find some trilliums blooming in the same area as 1997. I went and retrieved my macro lens and took some pictures of the blossoms. Turned out the day wasn’t a complete wash out after all.
