Morning Jewels



We have been having such beautiful morning mists this week. I was up early yesterday, and decided to take my camera over to the Great Swamp, to catch the sun through the mist. If you click on the image to enlarge it, you can see the drops of amber colored water that look like jewels, suspended between the petals of this wildflower that has gone to seed.

Mary, I thought the photo was lovely in the small version, but I enlarged it and simply gasped with the beauty of it!! Spiderwebbing, and dewdrops, and sunlight!! How can something with such an ugly name (cow parsnip - a lot of people have contact dermatitis from it) be so beautiful?!?!

Judy, thanks so much, and thanks for putting a name to it, too. I didn't know what it was, and I'm happy to say that I did not touch it. :)
