Painted Trillium

These spring beauties bloom only briefly, around the same time as Lady Slipper Orchid, and in the same locations. I could find only two at Rachel Carson NWR last Sunday, but it might be a bit early.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm and Super-macro. F2.8 @ 1/60th @ ISO 125. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, a touch of Recovery for the petals, not much Fill Light, Blackpoint right slightly, added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset. Cropped slightly for composition.

From Rachel Carson NWR Seasons.
