jack in the pulpit
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|We took a trek through the St.John's Conservation area just north of Fonthill Ontario. This is an area of sandy hills and valleys and Carolinean forest formed by glacial meltwaters (kame.) Throughout this magical woodland there are many species of wildflowers. One of my favourites is this jack-in-the-pulpit. If you are unfamiliar with this plant, you can see the little "jack" sitting inside the cup, or pulpit. Early afternoon, sunny day.|
Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum)1 to 3 feet tall. Spathe with purple and green stripes, hooded, enclosing clublike spadix(flowers clustered at base); leaves divided into 3 oval leaflets; berries red, clustered. Moist woods, April to July.

Excelent shot and well don eon this composition.
Mine are just starting to make there way up.
Nice one Linda , a well seen image a little tight on the right side but not seriously so. I know how dark it would of been under the trees making for very slow shutterspeeds, as our native arum which grows in simular conditions has the same common name, though in yours I think it is more appropriate.
