Prairie Trillium

(order ID # CT35-02560-A)

I spent much of my youth growing up on my friend's Redbird Farm, now converted to a Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Management Area near Iowa City. Despite the years of childhood games I played there I don't think I ever studied the ground as much as I did in two afternoons of shooting this spring. Being an adult, and a photographer, makes a difference. I was searching for wildflowers, and had spent a half hour setting up a shot on some small spring beauties. Forced to pause to wait out a rain sprinkle, I suddenly noticed at my feet this trillium, miraculously untrampled by my movements. After I finished with the spring beauties I spent another half hour shooting this gem, caught on the fleeting youthful cusp of opening into full glory.
